    Default Video of Anglo truck "ramming" Dail Gates

    Video posted on youtube of the protester driving the Angle cement truck up to the Dail gates.

    Based on this evidence you can hardly all it a "ramming".

    Looks more like a peaceful protest to me.

    Just proved how biased the RTE coverage of this event was.

    YouTube - Actual Footage of AngloTruck Ramming Dail Eireann !

    Apologies, I have just notice that this video has already been posted else where on p.ie

    That noise didn't sound like a ramming of any gate. More like brake lines being deliberately blown. I'd be surprised if the gate was touched - at most the truck gave them a little bump when the brake lines went.

    If he wanted to break down the gate he would have. Big truck like that.

    Twenty Gardai by the looks of things. Total overkill. And not very complimentary language. I guess they didn't think it would be filmed.

    But there's always someone watching, as this video proves.

    Edit: williewatch strikes again! Cheers for sharing!

    Does this mean Fionnan Sheahan can be sued for slander by the truck driver?

    Thanks but I cannot claim the credit for this. Somebody else filmed this and posted it to youtube. I just came across it on twitter.

    Default Power to the People

    "Who will govern the governors? There is only one force in the nation that can be depended upon to keep the government pure and the governors honest, and that is the people themselves. They alone, if well informed, are capable of preventing the corruption of power, and of restoring the nation to its rightful course if it should go astray. They alone are the safest depository of the ultimate powers of government"

    Fair enough - but you posted it up and I saw it here first. So cheers for that. I have it saved to my hard disk in case it disappears
