I honestly don’t think the above warrants response. Utterly bonkers twisting of my post.

Bull****.
Corporations are loving regular people blaming each other while they pollute at will. Painting XR as anti poor is another strategy. Lots falling for it.

For my own part, the freedom to travel to work unhindered would be quite important to me. One can hardly begin to imagine the levels of arrogance required to think that a right to protest trumps that.

Has XR stopped you going to work?

Any protest could be banned using that logic.

BS - protesting and trying to prevent people using public transport services are not the same thing. One is peaceful legitimate civil protest and the other is civil disruption/sabotage.

Protest to your heart's content. Just don't involve me. You don't have that right.

In today s examiner, they recap the strikes in 1920, Cork was at a standstill for days, nowadays people get a extremely upset about a 15 minute detour. The Brits would have been very happy about the forum people here.

What will blocking a motorway achieve tell me ?
It would be a fair protest against private cars

Buses and cyclists should be allowed through.

There are no cyclists allowed on the m50 and no Bus lanes either. So once you stop the traffic everything stops. Given the push back against them, I wouldn't fancy their chances of lasting long on the M50.
