"Agencies of the State got involved on the side of the developer, rather than on the side of the community. Given that alternative models were available in other countries, it was scandalous that we proceeded as we did. It reveals the mindset of certain people. I am reminded of the woman who was sent to jail in New York, who said that taxes are for small people. In this case, it seems that planning is not for big people…….
I refer again to the notion that some projects are too big for public accountability and transparency in planning. I am not making accusations that I cannot support."
The next Day of Solidarity will be held on Friday 30th March.
Come up and show solidarity with the local community. Actions will start first thing on Friday, so please arrive on Thursday night. Food and accommodation provided, donations welcome. There may be buses or lift shares coming from Dublin Cork or Galway so please get in touch if you need a lift or are able to offer one. Stick around for Saturday if possible, we can stop work two days in a row.
