And do they have cameras?

The Christian is described as "ranting". Perhaps he was but surely there is a narrow line between debating and ranting.

One mans debate is anothers rant?

I missed the second one couldn't get outta bed for a day and half after the long May daze march to police lines.

What the corner needs is 4 or 5 goups or individuals to make a 4-6 week commitment to be there/provide a speaker every week to give it a kickstart for it to take root. Hopefully groups organising around the referendum, Bush visit etc. will see it in their interest to use this forum to connect with folks in the streeet.

Probably needs 3-4 folks to guarantee that one of them will be there at kickoff time to get the boxes and signs out on time.

For the last few weeks it's relied on Rossa to be there on time to set up and I assume he will have gigs elsewhere at times & will be unavailable.

That there was three soapboxes going at once for a time on Sunday was a good sign.

Tourists are obviously interested (people are less uptight/ self-conscious/worried about being spotted by the neighbors when travelling). Meet intersesting foks had great chats with aan assylum seeker from Kurdistan (recently outta the war zone), Pakistani guy, A U.S. Vietnam Vet who did three tours and still believes it was the right thing to do after getting offa the box.

Dublin Catholic Worker crew are commited to be there weekly for the forseeable future.

Reaction to the "christian" was pretty much boredom and despair.

Unfortunately Hyde Park in London has become dominated by fundamentalists of every srtipe. But that is the fault of others abandoning the space.

Free speech - use it or lose it!
