Opinion : Direct Provision issue not unlike water meter issue

Opinion : Direct Provision issue not unlike water meter issue
Anti Direct Provision protesters outside Marian Hostel , Tullamore Co Offaly , Saturday March 7th.
Saturdays Anti Direct Provision Protest at the Marian Hostel in Tullamore not unlike Anti Water Meter Protests of 2014 / 2015 . 

Back in 2013 , The state through Irish Water had contracted GMC Sierra Ltd to install water meters accross Ireland ,  not unlike the companies involved in the installation of Direct Provision Centres , the company recorded a large income of more than €54 million for that year 2015.

In a similar fashion to companies involved in the Direct Provision industry such as Mosney Holiday PLC which made  136 million from the asylum industry since 2002 and is held by an offshore Isle of Man based company Sonning unlimited ,  the GMC Sierra 
company was also held by an offshore company in the Isle of Man named Millington . Millington was owned by Irish Billionaire Denis O’Brien whos wealth was recently estimated at $3.2 billion according to the American Business Magazine Forbes . Offshore Setup structures mean companies can avoid paying corporation tax and avoid filing public accounts here. 

In February 2015 , GMC arrived in my area to install water meters . Unfortunately , with the exception of a few , most local residents weren't bothered largely due to a certain degree of political correctness around the issue and our area like most areas at the time depended on 'outsiders' to come to the rescue and assist in holding out against the water meters .  Many of those outsiders would have been socialist and left wing groups who travelled to different areas around the Country to assist locals in resisting the water meter installation . Members of the Anti Austerity Alliance travelled all around Ireland doing the same. 

This was typical of the Anti Water Meter struggle in general . With the exception of the Big National Rallies in Big Towns and City centres , Local rallies were usually very small with many locals disinterested . 

This is what struck a chord with me in relation Direct Provision Protests , with the exception of the people in Oughterard and God Bless them , a real phenomenal community spirit was shown there , most direct provision centre protests are very small with the vast amount of local people either disinterested or too afraid to stand in the face a climate of political correctness on the issue. 
  
In the same way as the water meters and water charges , Direct Provision and the asylum system in Ireland is greatly Flawed . Statistics from the department of Justice show that most asylum seekers are now arriving at Dublin Airport from Safe Countries such as Albania , Georgia etc . This is putting real refugee lives at risk because when someone falsly claims to be a refugee they take away places from people who are actually in need of real help but also In the same way as water meters and charges , the system is costing the ordinary working joe a fortune in tax
 , 1 billion euro was the cost of DP to the Irish Taxpayer over the past 18 years , 120 million last year alone for accommodation excluding the legal costs of appeals etc which is not disclosed by the state
 . 

In Conclusion , I would urge those on the left of politics to remember the water meter protests of 2015 and how as 'outsiders' they travelled to different areas like my own (and much appreciated) to assist in stopping water meter installation and would urge people not to point the finger at others who are doing the same in trying to prevent the imposition of another failed system , the Direct Provision System.

i would plead with people in offaly and surrounding areas to support your local protest . Sean Deegan who used to work for the department of justice hearing asylum applications said that he heard over 500 cases in his time and only 2 people were genuine refugees. He said The majority of the cases were not refugees within the meaning of the united nations declaration on refugees

THE TAILS WAG THE DOGS IN THE DAIL,EU AND UN.NONE OF THEM WOULD SURVIVE WITHOUT THE INFLUENCE/INFILTRATION 
OF THESE TAILS, NEITHER WOULD THESE TAILS SURVIVE. An
Example is when POLITICAL CORRECTNESS was introduced by the
LIBERAL ESTABLISHMENT, we all laughed initially,silly bastards with
nothing better to do, A MANHOLE BECOMES A PERSONHOLE,really ?
And in a very short timeline relative to the present day it has controlled
the main media globally,controlled people by using the RACIST TAG, and controlled GOVTS.AND INTERNATIONAL BODIES.THE UN,EU AND DAIL WANT TO BAN " FREE SPEECH NOW " .....TODAY ! Quick ?
ANTIFA IS ONE TAIL.Although they say they are anti fascist?? THEY
ARE FASCIST,FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS AND SUPPORTED BY
YOUR DAIL AND GARDA,...TO STOP YOU COMPLAINING, /SHUT UP!
THERE ARE " NO REFUGEES TODAY " the UN,EU,DAIL,is already
using " OPEN BORDERS GLOBALLY " the new world order,GLOBALIST
If I was a conspiracy theorists,I would say they secretly welcome the 
CORONAVIRUS,to help them in their REPLANTATION OF HUMANITY,
but I'm a pragmatist....yes it is well within THEIR CONTROL/OBJECTIVE
OTHER TAILS ARE COMM UN ISM, ISLAM,NGO,FAR LEFT and who?
IRISH PEOPLE ? We are led to believe " OVERWHELMINGLY " VOTED
FOR ABORTION,remember dog and tail,THE INNOCENT,VOICELESS
WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN ! ........AS SURE AS THE SUN RISES !
So these same Irish people are capable of IGNORING THE HOMELESS
in PREFERENCE TO FOREIGN INVADERS....there are no refugees, 0
WHAT TAIL WAGS THEM ?....... WHAT TAIL WAGS A PATRIOT.....if you
don't know.......YOUR THE DOG....NO SELLOUT OF IRISHNESS

i'd be happy to attend these protests but I dont drive . if the organisers could do a carpooling scheme for people who dont drive , a lot more would go .

the only TD to speak the truth on this subject was Noel Grealish and he was rewarded with his highest vote yet in a general election

I'd appeal to traditional republicans and socialists to examine carefully what these NGOs represent and the Ireland they want before signing up . I'd appeal to all decent people to really think carefully before allowing yourself to be used as a vessel for these movements. They talk about "Hate and Division" but are they not the driving force behind this hate and division because they divide society based on social groups . everyone is divided into groups based on their soc
