Jobstown Innocent, Establishment Guilty
7.30pm Monday 17th July, Queen's SU
(Club rooms, third floor)
Guest speakers - Ruth Coppinger TD & Cllr Michael O'Brien, Solidarity
In Dublin, the first group of Jobstown defendants have been found not guilty of false imprisonment for taking part in a peaceful, anti-austerity protest which delayed then Deputy Prime Minister Joan Burton in her car for three hours. This is a huge blow to the Southern establishment, who threw everything at securing convictions in what was clearly a politically motivated witch-hunt to undermine the right to protest and cut across the left and movements of the 99%.
Come along to hear the details of the trial, including evidence of a police conspiracy, the impact the verdict has had and the campaign to have all charges against the remaining defendants dropped, as well as the growing movements for pay restoration and the right to choose in the South.
