Statement From Cork 32CSM

The recent savage sentences handed down to three anti-eviction activists involved in the Roscommon repossession demonstrates once again the Judiciary and political establishment’s loyalty to the landlord class.

The action taken by anti-eviction activists had clearly rattled the government, evidenced by the general absence of condemnation from ordinary citizens already sickened by the preferential treatment afforded to banks in the current housing and eviction crisis.

When one considers the recent handing down of lesser sentences for such crimes as drug dealing at national and international level, domestic and sexual abuse and recidivist criminal behaviour it is clear that the political direction given to the Judiciary by the establishment is designed to strike fear into community and social activists who employ direct action in pursuit of social justice.

This political sentencing must galvanise all social activists to work together in pursuit of the many social campaigns, such as the campaign against water charges where the financial interests of capitalism are prioritised by government and the lame politics of the so-called opposition remains deliberately ineffective.
