Photo essay of Anti-Property Tax Protest March to Dublin Castle -Sat 13th Apr
The anti-property tax demo took place today (Sat) assembling at the Garden of Remembrance / Parnell Square and then heading off down O'Connell street and to Dublin Castle. There was a turnout of between approximately 5,000 and 8,000. At Dublin Castle the entrance was sealed off by a line of Garda. Crowds gathered just below where a platform was setup where a number of speakers spoke to the crowd.
The first speaker was Brid Smith, then Joe Higgins (SP) and others including Billy Cleary the pension who wrote the now famous letter to revenue warning '‘You will not beat us into submission’. His letter is reproduced below. Other speakers were Jimmy Kelly, Richard Boyd Barrett and two students in turn one of whom was mistakenly assumed to be owner of his parent house.
“I am disgusted at people not doing anything to get up… they’ll do everything when they are sitting at a bar drinking pints, this is an apathetic attitude. Why is it always left to us? The grey brigade as we’re called. We’re older and we’re bolder.”Copy of the text of the letter sent to Revenue by Bill Cleary which has gone viral.
