Cork County Council rejects exclusion zone motion

A motion put forward by Social Democrats Councillor June Murphy has been turned down by Chief Executive Tim Lucey.

The proposed bye-laws would have banned, among other things, the distribution of materials such as leaflets from “unregulated” organisations .
 
Cllr. Murphy argued that the Council needed to take action in the absence of national legislation on exclusion zones.
 
However, Lucey reiterated that such a decision was beyond the scope of a local council and should be left to the Oireachtas to make, dismissing any further discussion on the matter.

freedom of assembly and expression is also a fundamental human right in any modern democracy , any attempts to stop people from engaging in this practice in any form is violation of their human rights
