VIDEO: Police attack Student demo in Dublin 3rd November 2010

No comment style video report from Student demo in Dublin yesterday.
img_1361student_demonstarion_against_fees_hike.jpg

Tens of thousands of students protested against the governments plans to double registration fees.

A group broke off from the main march and thousands followed and joined a loud angry protest at the Dail demanding to be let in, eggs bottles and Granny Smiths were thrown.

A group then occupied the Department of Finance on Merrion Row. Hundreds gathered there. The mood changed when a group of Gardai barged into the Department where it got very dangerous with a crush ensuing. Protesters and press did not panic which was key to limiting injuries. Anyone in the porch was thrown out. Gardai on horseback then went into the crowd. Shortly after riot vans pulled up nearby. Protesters were sitting on the ground between the horses and vans. The mounted Gardai reversed without warning onto the seated protesters. Hundreds were on a sit in front of the Department. The riot police moved in and pushed everyone back. One woman was brought out unconscious and thrown on the ground without the garda even checking if she was ok. How could an unconscious woman resist such treatment.

Watch the footage and make up your own mind.



Police continued to push remaining people down towards the Stephens Green Shopping centre continuing to threaten. One riot police gave my camera the whack of a baton without warning. One thing is for sure, the police force will not baton the press off the streets. It is a fundamental part of any democracy to have a free press.
