The Counter Protest was organised by Mark Malone of the Irish Association of Volunteers and Development Workers (Comhlámh) and the Solidarity Alliance against Racism and Fascism (SARF) . Mr Malone , a graduate of NUI maynooth was the founder of the Seomra Spraoi centre in dublin which regularly hosted meetings of the anarcho communist organisation Workers Solidarity movement , Revolutionary Anarcha-Feminist Group (RAG) and the 
  Abortion Rights Campaign . Mr Malone had previously worked for the European Network Against Racism (ENAR) , a Brussels based lobby group funded by George Soros's open society initiative for europe fund and the EU Commission .

Supporting the Free Speech Side was Renua Ireland who warned of the consequences of the government's proposed speech laws . 

The government is planning to bring in a new censorship law disguised as a law against 'hate speech' . In practice it will make it illegal for people to openly express opinions that may offend the feelings of another group of people. This is really an attempt to censor citizens freedom of speech by people who dont want to be asked awkward questions . Who benefits from hate speech laws . Cowardly politicians who dont want to answer difficult questions will benefit. They will be able to shut down debate on controversial issues or government policies.

Free speech means that no vested interest or social groups are above criticism . It forces people to be open and to develop solid arguments to defend themselves from difficult questions . For example free speech and open debate was essential to allowing people to challenge the notion of slavery and to secure the right to vote for women , even though these ideas deeply offended some groups  

Free Speech Protects people from being persecuted by the state for expressing controversial ideas or criticising government policies . For example , free speech allowed Irish people to argue and speak out in favour of the idea of Irish Independence even though the idea was deeply offensive to some gorups . 

As long as free speech does not advocate criminal activity , it allows the free exchange of ideas , allows problems to be identified , helps people see different perspectives and find solutions to problems.

I'd like to wish everyone a very happy christmas and new year . Remember freedom of expression is a fundamental basic human right . Many countries dont have this right . look at north korea and mainland china . you speak out and it can get you Jailed or worse .

In communist countries the first thing to go is free speech , the right to criticize government policy or elect a new government .

Then they take your wealth away , the idea is that they share it among everyone but they dont . The politicians enrich themselves with your money and live the high life while the people starve and go hungry .

Ireland is heading for a communist country . You must not let that happen . Make a new years resolution to get involved with new political parties that stand up for Democracy and free speech .

God bless and have a lovely christmas

so basically Mark Malone is using his position within the Irish Association of Volunteers and Development Workers to further his own agenda and has access to hundreds of NGOs which he uses to further his cause .

Here is a full list of those who were protesting against free speech on saturday posted by mark malone to twitter . Even the Irish Council for civil liberties was protesting against free speech . turns out they are funded by george soros open foundation and the EU like a lot of the others . no surprise then. He had the cheek to call it 'rally for peace' even though gardai had to arrest some of them for trying to attack other people.

a lot of anger on twitter over Trocaire's involvement with communist and anarchist groups . people saying they are cancelling their donations , getting rid of trocaire boxes .

Thank You Very Much to Mike Irish for an excellent piece and exceptional Photos of DEMOCRACY & FREE SPEECH in action.

It actually churns my guts to see these people with the Hammer and Sickle flying above their collective uneducated heads. Normally I WOULD NOT use words like Uneducated even when describing a foe or opponent, but in this case I make no apology. IF proof that communism / Socialism is a dreadful idea, one ONLY has to look at the success of Communism in Dividing the People of Ireland already!.
To those infantile enough to believe in Communism & desire to have US all under the Hammer and Sickle, I say: Read ANY history book on the subject!, ASK anybody living here in Ireland, who are either from Russia or ANY of the former East Bloc countries, Let me tell you something with absolute certainty, IF you think they will be in support, YOU are very wrong!.

I join Mike Irish in asking ALL who view this excellent piece to Please SHARE this article with as many people as possible!. Because even RTE are NOT giving us Free Speech Activists a fair go. Tonight on the Main RTE News they spoke about the event and claimed there were scuffles, but neglected to state that it was scuffles between The Gardai and ANTIFA members. Also to my horror, the piece to camera in the studio featured a photo with Racism in large lettering at the front!.

i think everyone was shocked to see Trocaire stand in solidarity with Antifa and other communist groups . the church needs to pull in the reigns on its Agencies like Trocaire and Crosscare . they are out of control
^
Hi Mr.D and Thank You for taking the time to reply.

Sadly, I don't think the Church has any interest in upsetting the apple cart (so to speak), But I agree with you something must be done. Because we as a people are on a fast track to nowhere and actively (it seems) following the direction of the UK and Sweden.

That said recent comments from the Archbishop of Dublin, where he sadly stated something along the lines of: You know these Catholics are real racists (not direct quote) only goes to show that the Church under this mans direction are more than happy to sell out the faithful!, which is frankly a very bitter and painful pill to swallow.
^
would appreciate if people could share this as much as possible , for some reason Google is not indexing the article , dont know if its deliberate or what , but please share with friends as much as possible . thank you
^
hi mike , i was very sad to hear that Google wouldn't show your article in its search results because its quite interesting about Mark Malone and the SARF movement . was at the rally myself and spoke to people from all over ireland from galway to donegal to wexford all very worried about our country and the silencing of people's views by government
^
RIGHT YOU ARE- RIGHT SO FAR- PATRIOTS FOR TRUTH,LIBERTY,FREE SPEECH AND HUMAN RIGHTS-FOR ALL IRELAND
^
anyone who holds a different opinion in Ireland is called 'far right' . We used to have great debates in Ireland up to fifteen years ago . until things noticeably started to change with uneven debating panels where only one person with a different view to government would be allowed on , then it became acceptable to have nobody at all representing a different view .

It really is sad as a country that we cant have reasoned debate without labelling people as far right , fascist , nazi etc .

^
I was proud to stand on our side away from the other lot. Left wing can be intimidating but this builds a feeling of comradeship. I saw Grand Torino, Tracey and ’Computing Forever’. If you watched on streams then try to go on the 1st of February 2020. It’s not dangerous – Tiocfaidh ár Nollaig!
^
thanks mike , some good pics .
^
sad day when you see the old hammer and sickle on the streets of dublin
^
shocked to see people waving communist flags . Boyd Barrett said "their harmless" , an ideology that killed 94 million people being celebrated by people in ireland is sickening , its not harmless , its dangerous .
