Sat 27th Feb. Today's long planned anti-lockdown protest that was due to take place in Stephens Green was prevented from entering the park because it was closed by the government and all roads leading to it were sealed off by a massive police operation.

This report of the protest critically looks at what happened and how the agenda of the government has been cynically served. read full story / add a comment

Christine McTiernan is both brave and a hero because she has had enough as her business has been forced to close because of the Covid Hoax being used to usher in a police state and she has been denied her right to earn a living and put food on the table. Today she stood up against what has become in this country and elsewhere our sinister police state in the making. Immediately the Guards came down on her and threatened her with arrest.

There’s a reason why the Biden regime is trying to attack Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and create an illusion of a disproportionate viral crisis in the state. With no declared emergency restrictions in place at the state level since last September, the fact that Florida is doing better than the national average completely exposes the lie of lockdown and masks having any effect whatsoever on the fixed natural progression of the virus. read full story / add a comment
Bury’s Bridge to Carrigtwohill Cycle Route
national / public consultation / irish social forum / press release Thursday February 11, 2021 17:19 by cyclist   image 1 image
Transport Minister Eamon Ryan has allocated €240m to walking and cycling projects, including to low-quality projects which are already designed, and new projects to be designed using old design standards.

This is in stark contrast to the UK where cycling route design guidance was updated before the extra funding was announced and before it was allocated. Funding was linked to higher-standards.

While the cycling infrastructure in the UK is far from perfect, the quality of projects in London and elsewhere has started to far surpass the quality of street changes built in Ireland. The higher standard infrastructure in the UK includes Dutch-style designs which the National Transport Authority has resisted implementing. read full story / add a comment

RiseUp Éireann, It’s time now to take action, peacefully for this social gathering.

RiseUp Éireann invites Everyone to come to this social gathering ...Uniting together, to create solutions to end Lockdown, & to come together peacefully, to celebrate life, claim our Freedom, with artistic expression through Culture & CommUnity.

Please share this event far & wide, invite everyone, help spread the message of Truth...

RiseUp Éireann was created as a response to create Solutions, to navigate the current draconian restrictions, that are being experienced on a worldwide scale.

The Irish Government has brought legislation in that goes against a democratic society, against Irelands constitution and more importantly, for RiseUp Eireann against inalienable human rights. Of which no Government has the right to remove. It’s crimes against humanity, & Tyranny.

We intend to use peaceful methods to express our voices for the type of society we wish to live in.

We do not promote violence and are non political & non religious. Spirituality & connection to God is welcome.

All welcome to Unite with RiseUp Éireann, & our extensive network.

Everyone welcome to be themselves, & to stand in their own beliefs, based on Truth, Integrity, Authenticity & Love.
RiseUp Éireann acknowledges that the world Governments are using psychological and germ warfare, with fear being their main weapon of choice.
We choose Love.

Due to the reluctance and active censorship of alternative narratives to the one they are expounding within their own literature and that of RTE the Governments media propaganda machine, we will utilise whatever means are available to get our message out. RiseUp will peacefully demonstrate through the arts. read full story / add a comment

The general problem of culture today is its ability to facilitate and support negative aspects of society through encouraging escapism, diversion and ignorance regarding many important issues of contemporary life, such as economic crises, repressive legislation, poverty, and climate chaos. Or worse still, the use of culture to promote elite views of society regarding power and money, as well as imperialist agendas through negative depictions of a targeted ethnic group or country. read full story / add a comment

In what is becoming almost a daily report of massive nursing home deaths following injections of experimental mRNA COVID shots, a nursing home in the U.K. is reporting over one third of their residents have died after receiving the mRNA experimental COVID injections.

We are now seeing a very predictable pattern as we are reporting all over the world where the elderly are dying at a very alarming rate following mass vaccinations of the experimental mRNA injections.

And in all of these cases, the local media is quoting local officials as saying that the “vaccines” have nothing to do with the deaths. They are also stating that deaths following the experimental mRNA injections are “expected.” read full story / add a comment

Some 10,000 people marched through the center of the Austrian capital Vienna on Saturday to protest against restrictions aimed at stopping the spread of Covid-19, and to demand the resignation of Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.

Coronavirus skeptics took to the streets as Kurz and his government discussed the possibility of extending the ongoing third lockdown in Austria, which includes movement restrictions and the closure of all non-essential businesses. The official announcement is expected on Sunday read full story / add a comment

As predicted the experimental vaccines is causing unnecessary deaths. There are plenty of cheap and workable treatments, even preventive treatments such as Vitamin D, Zinc, Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. After all the governments everywhere are so concerned about old people but they are quite happy to let them die by injecting them with experimental vaccines for which the companies producing them are exempt from all liabilities.

The risks with this vaccine are so high, it is foolish for any healthy or young person to take it since there chance of dying from Covid is less than 0.1% and for older age groups only slightly higher. So why give it to elderly people whose immune systems are already deterioating as they reach old age especially when drugs like Hydroxychloroquine when given early make an excellent preventive. The media have never covered the fact that the study published in the medical journal The Lancet which gave Hydroxychloroquine the bad name, used fabricated data and had to be withdrawn and their findings were as fabricated as the data. The media and government still pretend this did not happen.

So is it surprising now to hear of this latest news reported from Norway and is very likely repeating itself all over the world.

The Norwegian Medicines Agency announced today that 23 people died after receiving the experimental Pfizer mRNA COVID injections.

Norway’s health authorities have allegedly changed their recommendations for injecting the elderly, as all 23 deaths were among people older than 80 years old.

“If you are very frail, you should probably not be vaccinated,” Steinar Madsen at the Norwegian Medicines Agency said at a webinar on corona vaccine for journalists on Thursday.

All the news media in Ireland have gone ballistic in the last few days ramping up the Covid fear to new extreme levels. There are already 100,000s of people absolutely terrified by their misleading news and this sustained level of fear for over 10 months now is very likely leading to very dangerous health conditions for these people leading to heart conditions, mental issues, cancer and all sorts of problems caused largely by the extreme stress that they have put themselves under because unfortunately the media and the politicians are giving highly distorted, mis-leading inaccurate and sensational news about the Covid situation.

A good example is the news from the past few days where we are told the hospitals are overflowing with Covid patients and as of today it is claimed 46 are dead from Covid.

The aim of this article is to bring some context and reality to this, something the mainstream media and politicians and their bureaucrats are strenuously going out of their way to not do.

Your Health Passport to Tyranny

There is no doubt about it. China with over 1 billion people is a giant single nation police state. Even before the arrival of 2020 china had it's great digital firewall of China in place which carefully controlled the flow of information. In recent years, the level of digital surveillance via cameras backed by armies of watchers and more recently AI software has rapidly moved the totalitarian system towards greater automation such that their whole social interaction is moving towards a form of social credits which allow what you can do based on how you behaviour and of course whether you are fully compliant with government diktats. There has been some criticism that it is not really like that, but the only response is to say not till now.

However, as reported on RT.com today ( https://www.rt.com/news/512079-beijing-coronavirus-qr-code/ ), China has now introduced health "QR" color coded system and these now have to be used if you want to take a taxi, take a train, fly, go to a restaurants or shopping mall. This is pretty much identical to the system proposed here in Ireland called the Health Passport Europe and promoted and described at https://www.healthpassportireland.ie/ and is the same and compatible with all the other health passports systems proposed EU wide.

If we succumb to this tyranny then life as we know it will be over. The dynamics of totalitarianism is that it never stops and is never content with what it has and further rules and control will get added. We have entered a bureaucrats dream world where no matter how ridiculous the rule or restriction, it gets implemented and every closet authoritarian in officialdom has been given free reign.

In this article it is show that the developments of the last few days show this trend is accelerating and the door is slamming shut behind us. read full story / add a comment

One of the biggest scandals of the COVID Plandemic is the needless deaths of hundreds of thousands of people who died needlessly because the FDA refused to issue off-label emergency use for hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), a safe drug whose patent ran out years ago, and that thousands of doctors around the world have used effectively, often with a 100% success rate, in treating COVID patients.

And it was reported back in late December that the world's second largest supplier of raw materials to make HCQ blew up. read full story / add a comment

An American economist nominated for the Nobel peace prize has called for the head of the World Health Organisation to be prosecuted for genocide over his alleged involvement in directing Ethiopia’s security forces.

“Was a crucial decision maker in relation to security service actions that included killing, arbitrarily detaining and torturing Ethiopians”

David Steinman accused Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, 55, who took over at the WHO three years ago, of being one of three officials in control of the Ethiopian security services from 2013 to 2015.

This story should be on the front page of every mainstream media outlet but of course it won't...

The COVID19 scam of 2020 is quickly unraveling, as more and more people are waking up to the fact that the public has been lied to when it comes to COVID19, and the government actions taken in the name of COVID that have destroyed so many lives have been completely unnecessary, as millions of people around the world now are taking to the streets and demanding their freedom back from COVID medical tyranny.

The PCR test, which is the main test used to determine if someone is COVID positive or not, is now universally accepted by top scientists around the world as being a faulty test. See COVID testing in our COVID Information Center

Back in September the government announced they were planning to vaccinate up to 750,000 people, mostly children with a new nasal vaccine spray. I suppose a spray seems less dangerous and frightening than a needle. There was a major push this year by the pharmaceutical companies through their lackeys in the government and press to urge people to take it and on back of the constant fear campaign since last March, it seems to have been highly effective. We are supposed to believe that this is all for the benefit of us all and the fact that anyone is making money out of it is just an outrageous thing to suggest. Nor should it be mentioned in polite company that the pharmaceutical companies are NOT liable for any vaccine injuries and you have to take any case you have, against the government. This nice little arrangement has been in place for years and is the envy of all manufacturers of all and anything. read full story / add a comment
