Jobstown Not Guilty: defend the right to protest

Unite the Union general secretary Len McCluskey (left) gives his backing to the 'Jobstown Not Guilty' campaign.

The Irish state plans to try 18 peaceful protesters for 'false imprisonment' of Labour former deputy premier Joan Burton. They were part of a sit-down protest and slow march around Burton's car during the successful campaign against water charges in Ireland.

The establishment wants to criminalise protest and take vengeance against the movement's leadership, especially Socialist Party Ireland. Paul Murphy (right), a member of Ireland's parliament and the Socialist Party, could lose office if convicted.
