As we go to press the verdict is expected in the Jobstown trial in Ireland. Six protesters - including Paul Murphy, a TD (MP) and member of the Socialist Party's sister party - face charges of false imprisonment. The maximum sentence in the event of a guilty verdict is life in prison. The charges relate to a sit-down protest which delayed the car of then deputy prime minister Joan Burton in 2014. More can be read about the case in 'Defend the right to protest - stop this political vendetta!' and other articles. We will also post the result once it is known and any subsequent call for solidarity action.
