Google Protesters to set up permanent Base and invite homeless people to join them
Protesters have vowed to set up a "permanent base" outside the Headquarters of Google Ireland and have invited homeless people around Dublin to come and Join them where they will give them "sandwiches , warm drinks and company" 
 
On Wednesday , protesters began gathering outside the offices of Google Ireland on Barrow Street in Dublin 4 calling on the company to reinstate the Youtube Video Channel of Irish Journalist Gemma O'Doherty who was permanently banned from the platform on Tuesday over alleged breaches of hate speech rules . 
 
In a public address posted to her facebook page Ms O'Doherty explains . 
 

we're going to keep a permanent base there , some of the guys are talking about bringing tents , we also want to welcome our homeless up there as well because its actually quite sheltered . we will look after them while we're there . we're there for 8 hours a day at least , we will be able to give them warm drinks , sandwiches , we will be able to give them company , talk to them about what their going through . if anyone who is homeless is listening to this now , please please come and join us . 


Ms O'Doherty says the protests will continue until such time as her Youtube Account is restored and she gets an apology from the Company for the inconvenience caused to both her and her audience . 
 
Nobody has given me an explanation as to why my channels were removed . They came up with a couple of phony excuses a couple of days ago ..'hate speech' .. but I said where is the evidence of that , where has a word of hatred come out of my mouth , they haven't been able to produce the goods on that . As soon as they come down , talk , apologise for all of the inconvenience they've caused me and my audience and people who want to know about corruption in Ireland , put the channel back up and that will be the end of it , but believe you me if they get away with this , they'll be coming for you next , facebook , google , twitter , they'll be all coming for you , thats why we have to say No , we're drawing a line in the sand and we're saying No , free speech must be respected , the fundamental tenant of this democracy must be respected , you're not coming into this country and telling us what we can and cannot say . 

The protesters say they will continue the protests today and tommorrow from 2pm at the Offices of Google Ireland on Barrow Street Dublin 4.

The google protests need to be stepped up , not stepped down , this company has so much power over ireland and what news we read and has interfered in the last two referendums by fixing search results and video placement on youtube . Its a very dangerous organisation
#
google has now banned the iconoclast from youtube . another popular conservative voice gone , no prior warning and gave grounds which weren't true .

#
yep , critiqued gone now too . youtube is banning everyone critical of left wing thinking under the guise of 'hate speech' , which nowadays is any kind of conservative speech
#
its very scary what google are doing . they want to create a platform where only our government's views are represented and all dissenting voices are silenced
#
This screenshot taken today of google search results for Gemma O'Doherty shows how the company alters its search results to push a particular agenda . These anti Gemma stories from websites I haven't heard of before are its top gemma stories . Irish people should be very worried that these companies have so much influence over the information being communicated to us on a daily basis . One would have to assume that Gemma's protests outside its head office influenced the company to promote these stories ahead of others . I would encourage everyone who doesn't want huge corporations controlling Ireland to turn up outside google offices and Join with gemma , even if you dont agree with her on some issues , we all must agree that this kind of thing is very bad for Ireland and democracy .



#
a truly remarkable lady , we should all be very proud of her . Without the Freedom to express ourselves , we have nothing .
#
from what i heard , management at google are very concerned about this , they wont want people camping on their doorstep , its not good for business . would be very surprised if Gemma's channel is not restored by the weekend .
#
was very proud to have supported Gemma on Saturday . The momentum is building and More are Joining . Free speech and freedom of expression are at the very heart of Bunreacht na hEireann . Google has immense power in its hands . The largest search engine and Video Platform in the world . If we are saying its ok for them to filter out certain political views , this will have huge repurcussion for Elections and referendums not just in Ireland but globally . I would encourage everyone near Barrow Street to join with supporters of free speech each day this week at 2pm
