The Liberal understands that there’s more anti-mask and anti-lockdown rallies planned for Dublin over the coming weeks with thousands expected to gather and march through the streets of Dublin demanding an immediate u-turn on coronavirus restrictions.
Meanwhile, thousands of protesters marched across the centre of Dublin on Saturday afternoon in an event titled ‘Time for Change’ organised by grassroots activists Yellow Vests Ireland. The Liberal.ie joined them to hear the voices of a growing movement ignored by the mainstream media.
Beginning at Customs House at 2PM, the crowd swelled in numbers rapidly. Gardai manned barriers on both sides of the quay with barriers, searching the bags of some attendees. People came from all corners of the country and all walks of life to protest a variety of issues against the government, including Covid-19 restrictions such as mandatory facemasks and lockdown. Among the crowd participants could be heard speaking in English, Gaeilge, Spanish, Portugese and a variety of Slavic languages.
