Today is February 29th, the Occupy crew have had there scanty town blighting the clock tower for about 4 months now. It is time for them to go. It is unoccupied most of the time, serves no purpose whatsoever and has only marginal support from the community.
It is the beginning of the major tourist season in Waterford city. In a couple of weeks there will be the 1848 Tricolour Celebration, then the St. Patricks Day parade, then the summer will bring Sparoi and in September the Harvest Festival. All great events, run by dedicated people who truly care about the future of the city. We need the quay cleared of this ramshackle group of tents and hoarding.
I say to “the Occupiers” It is time for you to go. You have made your point and nobody cared about it. For the good of this city move on.
If the persons behind occupy wish to protest and create a political movement then do that, do not just sit in a tent and whinge about parking fines.
