"Mass clearances during the Irish Famine were made possible by the landlords' use of the infamous bailiffs - The Crowbar Brigade. Their actions combined with the presence of police were likely to quell any thought of serious resistance by tenants / indigenous people who 'must be taught by the strong arm of the law that they have no power to oppose or resist'." http://www.nde.state.ne.us/SS/irish/unit_3.html

Well, is that right?

Limerick County Council brought in their own Cro-bar Construction Brigade accompanied by An Garda Síochána again this morning in a staged attempt to push the polluted River Deel water pipeline past the 'white line', which was held again this morning by local residents, mostly women, including Orla Kaiser's mother Joan Hayes and Tom Clarke's wife Breda Clarke. Joan and Breda showed no fear in a powerful statement to Gardaí, Limerick County Council and national media, saying they are prepared to go jail if necessary, with Orla, to defend their rights and their Spring Water. read full story / add a comment

The Bleach Lough Spring Water Retention Group want to stay connected to the lake which has provided them with spring water for more than 50 years. Limerick Co Council want to divert them to a water supply from the polluted River Deel.

Last Thursday 1st June, Limerick Co. Council obtained a high court injunction against 7 local residents who have drawn a line in the road and are blocking this ‘new’ pipeline from crossing that line and coming any further. They will continue to walk the line from tomorrow Tuesday 6th June, when Co Council workers are expected to try and force their way through using the threat of this injunction.

For Immediate Release
March 3, 2006

John Carmody 087-6275579

Limerick — Confined to a cage with her nude body painted like a tiger and a banner above her reading, "Wild Animals Don’t Belong Behind Bars," a woman will protest the use of exotic animals by Duffy’s Circus. The protest will highlight the dangers that animal acts pose to humans and animals alike:

Date: Friday, March, 3
Time: 12 noon sharp
Place: Start of Cruises Street (Opposite HMV Music Store)

Recently animal protection group Animal Defenders International revealed for the first time ever their findings of an undercover investigation into several Irish circuses in Ireland including Duffy’s Circus. The campaign report on Ireland's circuses is based on undercover investigations by ADI Field Officers into seven circuses touring Ireland in 2000 and 2003. ADI Field Officers obtained employment with two Irish circuses, and observed many more. Examples of the violence used to control the animals were captured in the Irish launch video:

* a camel slapped in the face and then hit in the face with a
broom and finally jabbed with a broom handle
* an elephant kicked in the leg and then punched in the face
* a hippo whipped to hurry it along when it was already
walking in the desired direction
* a keeper whipping an elephant in order to get her to move
* a baby camel being roughly handled to force him to move
* a pregnant camel performing just days before giving birth read full story / add a comment
