    Default Should there be a dedicated protest area in the Phoenix Park,in order to avoid disruption ?

    Every year there are dozens of street protests in Dublin's city centre. They tend to focus on a small number of streets/areas in the city centre (Kildare St, College Green, O'Connell St etc). These can cause significant traffic disruption, indeed as such that is part of their intent (to get attention)

    Why not designate a large area in Phoenix Park for protests ? An added bonus is it would make it easier for the Garda to police & count protesters.

    Kinda defeats the purpose of protesting in the first place.
    Racism = fear, low self-esteem and breath-taking ignorance.

    Given the unpredictable weather, it might be even more considerate - to the protesters, and the authorities - if the protests were held on Facebook.

    Perhaps cyp could even set up and host a designated protest page?
    History will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening.

    Which, of course, is next door to the pederasty parlour.
