Report of Justice for Terence Wheelock Protest

Date:

Over 500 people came out to support the Justice for Terence Wheelock Campaign on Saturday, June the 9th.

On the backdrop of a warm sunny Saturday, hundreds of local residents joined by supporters marched through Summerhill, down Gardiner St. and finally to Store St. demanding justice for Terence Wheelock and all those families who've had love ones die in police custody.

At Store Street - Joe Costello TD (Labour Party), Mary Lou McDonald MEP (Sinn Fein), Tony Gregory TD (Independent), Councillor Aodhán Ó Riordáin (Deputy Lord Mayor of Dublin) and Gregor Kerr (Workers Solidarity Movement) all gave speeches reaffirming their support for the campaign.

The WSM, Socialist Party, IRSP, Sinn Fein, Labour Party all had members and banners at the well attended demo.

However, their presence was nothing comapred to the hundreds of local North Inner City residents who came out to show their solidarity with the Wheelock family.

Solidarity is Strength!

An Injury to One; Is an Injury to All.
