Both the media and the state are incapable of telling the truth
about May Day 2004. http://struggle.ws/wsm/news/2004/farmleigh1may.html
A witch-hunt is being conducted by the
state, ably assisted by the media. We are supposed to have the
right to peacefully protest. Indeed, it is this right that
distinguishes democracy from dictator-ship. It was due to the fact
that we have such a right that over a 100,000 people took to the
streets to display their opposition to the war. The May 2004
protests are no different.

In this 'democratic' world it is the pursuit of profit that is put
before all else, where dignitaries and leaders zip around our city
making decisions over fine wines, decisions that affect us but
ones in which we have no say.

The government's street party was cancelled but no reason was
given, later it transpired from an 'anonymous source in the
cabinet' that it was because of those pesky protestors. Who was
being secretive now? Really what the authorities hate more than
anything is protests, and what's more, a protest that focuses
attention on their agenda. Europe http://struggle.ws/wsm/eu.html
is about keeping certain people out, and also about bulldozing a
clear pathway for the privatisation of our services.

When the Mercedes cavalcades no longer cut through town there
will be certain truths that remain. McDowell will still be pursuing
his racist policy of forced deportations. http://struggle.ws/wsm/refugee.html
The council will still be increasing your bin-tax bill for next year,
while in the north they are coninuing to introduce water-charges.
The cops who battered http://struggle.ws/wsm/news/2002/rtsMAY.html
people in Mayday two years ago will still not have been tried. The
Warmonger George Bush will be coming to visit Ireland in June
to thank us for opening Shannon up as a petrol station for his
warplanes carting death to Iraq. Our imbecile, Bertie, will be
there grinning like a favoured pet, representing both Europe and
Ireland. Bush is over to thank his friends, Irish and European,
who have helped him in his effort to steal the resources of Iraq,
install a puppet regime there, liberating that country by invading
it, and killing all who resist the imperialist army.

When the EU circus leaves, we start concentrating on the visit of
the world's no. 1 terrorist, George W. Bush. Let's all make sure
he knows how we feel about him when the leader of the 'free'
world lands. This world won't be free for a while yet, and there
will be many more protests before we get to real democracy, and
real freedom. The leaders better get used to protest.
