Not much into all these climate change protests but why do so many people in Dublin drive big guzzlers of jeeps ? Only farmers or construction outfits should have jeeps . Particularly in an already traffic clogged city , smaller vehicles or dart-luas for these unnecessary jeep drivers .

Says who?

Where'd you get your definition?

And even so...you don't know what these cnuts will do to take down a plane.
Thats the definition. One who threatens to use fear and terror as a threat. The activists have not made any threat of use of an act of terror that they have the ability to carry out, as the poster implied.

IF and when they do take down a plane I'll agree with you - but only the specific in ones that carry out the act.

I was working close by that day. I don’t know exactly what triggered the cops to react that day. Maybe they just had a pain in their hole with bad scruffs giving them lip and being a general nuisance. I haven’t seen a repeat since but would dearly love to see the current rabble get a boot in the bollocks.

These terrorists have said they are willing to break the law.

You dont need them to do that, Little Mix did it all by themselves last night, a complete stand still for hours.

These terrorists have said they are willing to break the law.
So, you believe every declaration of brealing the law is a terrorist act. Ok. Leave you here then.

It's easy to brand someone as a terrorist, especially if you don't hold with their beliefs or values but it's worth bearing in mind our country was founded by 'terrorists' who wanted something different and were willing to break laws to achieve it.

You could say the same thing about Islamic terrorists.

Yes, you could, but there's a gulf of difference between those who will cause disruption and those who are willing to kill, reality check time.

Why would they? The protests this week have been very peaceful and dignified, no big deal like. No need for batons in Dublin that I can see.

Indeed, the Gardai seem to be working with and around the protesters. It’s all good to date.

Yeah, but they're protestors. They protest things. Posters here believe they should have the **** kicked out of them for protesting.

Something to do with a free country and all that.

What about the the right wing lunatics?
