Climate Protesters to shut down Dublin in October

Climate Protesters to shut down Dublin in October
The Extinction Rebellion group (previously called rising up) which brought London traffic and rail to a Standstill for two whole weeks in April and resulted in more than 1000 arrests has announced plans to hold a week long protest in Dublin City Centre starting on October 7 . 

The week long protest in Dublin is part of its International Rebellion that will take place in more than 60 cities.
 
Action is expected in more than 60 cities from Paris to Berlin, and all the way round the world including Los Angeles, Santiago, Washington DC, New York, Montreal, Buenos Aires, Dublin, Madrid, London, Amsterdam, Prague, Vienna, Cape Town, New Delhi, Mumbai, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Wellington. Extinction Rebellion currently has a presence in more than 72 countries with a total of 485 groups across a total of 473 cities and towns.

Extinction Rebellion first came to notoriety last October and November . On 31st October 2018, it assembled on Parliament Square in London to announce a "Declaration of Rebellion against the UK Government" . In November Activists blockaded five bridges across the River Thames in a day of havoc for commuters in order to "pressure the government to tackle climate change" . They chanted "We are the ones we’ve been waiting for" . Since then , Dozens of countries now have groups springing up, from the Solomon Islands to Australia, from Spain to South Africa, the US to India. 

The organisation was co-founded by Roger Hallam who said the ambition was to "bring down all the regimes in the world and replace them" starting with Britain , In a video posted on YouTube, he said protesters "should be willing to die". Mr Hallam said in the past  "You need about 400 to go to prison and you need two to three thousand people to get arrested". Mr Hallam is currently researching a PhD in effective radical campaigning. 

Another leading member of the group and financial backer is Gail Bradbrook who said she "does not condemn" protesters who "choose to damage property in order to protect nature" . Ms Bradbrook who has a PhD in molecular biophysics , flew to Costa Rica a few years ago to take a dose of ibogaine, a hallucinogenic shrub growing in West Africa , she said the drugs 'rewired' her brain and gave her 'the codes of social change'. Afterwards, she ended her marriage and began her activism in Extinction Rebellion . 
  


On its website , Extinction Rebellion says its intent is "causing large scale disruption to force Government to take urgent action on the Climate and Ecological Emergency" . 

The group states that democracy is "part of the problem" and is "incapable of making the radical long-term policy decisions" needed to address climate change .

It praises Ireland's citizens assembly and urges the UK government to follow suit . 

Extinction Rebellion believes that part of the problem is the way that government operates. The UK's parliamentary democracy is a form of representative government power is in the hands of a few representatives who are elected by the people. This form of government has proved itself incapable of making the radical long-term policy decisions . To break this deadlock, Extinction Rebellion is urging the government to commission a Citizens' Assembly on the Climate and Ecological Emergency to create a roadmap for the UK to navigate through this crisis
 
In recent years, Ireland has used citizens’ assemblies to successfully break the deadlock on two controversial issues: legalising same-sex marriage and the repeal of the Eighth Amendment on abortion. The recommendations of the Citizens’ Assembly informed public debate and emboldened politicians to advocate for change regarding these issues. The Irish Citizens’ Assembly website provides information on all issues deliberated by the assembly. For example, Making Ireland a Leader in Tackling Climate Change (scroll down to the Recommendations section to see their conclusions on this issue). The Irish parliament are currently considering a Climate Emergency Measures Bill, which will ban oil and gas exploration


A recent YouGov poll has shown public opinion has shifted against the protests. The survey of 3,561 British adults found 52% either "somewhat oppose" or "strongly oppose" the action, compared with 36% who "strongly support" or "somewhat support" it.
  
Cormac Nugent, a spokesman for its Ireland Protests said the group is "trying to stop business as usual because business as usual is ruining the planet"

On its Facebook Page 'Extinction rebellion Ireland'  it states .. "From October 7th we will be in full-blown rebellion against our governments in multiple cities and continents,  In Ireland, the plan is to peacefully shut down roads in Central Dublin and nonviolently disrupt the government until our leaders agree to Take Emergency Action Now"

hi cathy , two wrongs dont make a right . firstly , Im not going to excuse the USA's illegal wars , I mean when Obama was president he dropped 25000 bombs a year in his illegal WARS . completely wrong and ujustified . it was revenge rather than defence. Having said that, it was Islamic Extremism that started the whole thing in the first place . It would be a very foolish person that turns a blind eye to any form of extremism. i have spoken with muslims in Ireland who said they

Perhaps it's time for Ireland to stop helping USA to bomb the home countries of the immigrant people. There countries are no longer safe for them. Ireland supports their attack by allowing US airplanes to refuel at shannon for the bombing missions
