“WE WON’T COMPLY”: Thousands protest vaccine passes in Dublin

Thousands of protesters gathered outside the Convention Centre in Dublin to protest a government bill on domestic vaccine passes.

According to reports, busloads of protesters were arriving from around the country, and the entire event was organised in under 24 hours.

The crowd chanted phrases such as “Shame on you” and “Freedom”, while posters included phrases such as “My body, my choice” and “We will not comply.”

Despite the crowd’s protest, The Health (Amendment No.2) Bill 2021 was passed by 74 votes to 68.

Mattie McGrath TD of the Rural Independent Group (all members of which voted against the bill) said that the measures will “pit brother against brother, father against son, and mothers against daughters,” and asked Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly what he had against the hospitality industry.

McGrath called on Donnelly to withdraw the bill, and asserted that it was a “smash and grab for more power.”

However, Donnelly defended the policy.

“The entire European Union digital covid-19 certificate is based on vaccination status,” the minister said.

“We’ve already accepted the principle.”
