Ireland – defend the Jobstown protesters

#JobstownNotGuilty outside children’s court 4 December. Several under 18-year olds are facing serious criminal charges because they protested against unjust water charges when the Tánaiste (deputy prime minister) Joan Burton visited Jobstown, near Dublin, in November 2014.

Socialist Party member and TD (MP) Paul Murphy, along with other anti-water charge protesters, has appeared in court to face ‘false imprisonment’ charges. The under-18s are in court again in January and adults on 14 December.
