first_imgThe Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Ministry has completed the investigations for 45 hinterland communities identified for land titling and demarcation. This was confirmed by Coordinator of the Amerindian Land Titling (ALT) project, Enrique Monize.Sixty-eight communities were initially targeted, and 23 villages were investigated in the early stages of the project.Monize also disclosed that the Ministry is now in the process of surveying these villages and completing those reports and discussing the way forward with the relevant agencies.Coordinator of the Amerindian Land Titling (ALT) project,Enrique Monize“This process is a very long one (and) we had some setbacks. We have 10 villages that are not giving consent for demarcation, and so we couldn’t move forward so we had to stop those 10 villages. This set us back a bit further because we could have already completed some of those communities,” Monize explained.“The issue with State lands is that forestry has interest in terms of giving out land concessions, Lands and Surveys gives out leases, the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) gives out mining concessions and we also have the Protected Areas Commission which has an amount of land that is legally given to that Commission to manage and so we have to take all of this into consideration.”In regions Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) and Eight (Potaro-Siparuni), where there is heavy mining, the process for land application and extension takes a longer period.Under the Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund (GRIF), the Government of Guyana in 2013, signed a US$10.7 million agreement for the implementation of the Land Titling and Demarcation project. This project is being spearheaded by the United Nations Development Programme.The ALT project seeks to enable Indigenous people to secure their lands and natural resources for sustainable social and economic development. Titling and demarcation will strengthen land tenure security and the expansion of the asset base of Amerindians, enabling improved long-term planning for future development.The Amerindian Land Titling project has been ongoing for four years.last_img read more


first_imgThe main witness in the case against businessman Imran Khan, who last October allegedly attempted to kill Romario Baljeet, called “Short Boss”, was unable to identify the accused on Thursday at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.When the matter was called before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly, Dornel Hopkinson, a friend of the Virtual Complainant, who was at Palm Court when the incident occurred, took to the stand to give his testimony.Romario BaljeetDuring the testimony, Special Prosecutor in the case, Latchmie Rahamat asked Hopkinson to look around the courtroom and identify the accused, and the witness smiled and replied he did not see him anywhere in the court.The Prosecutor, who looked stunned at the answer given by Hopkinson, rephrased the question and asked if he understood the question that was put to him.It was then Khan’s Attorney, Glen Hanoman objected to the Prosecutor rephrasing the question, since the witness answered.The Magistrate upheld the Attorney’s objection and as such, the Prosecutor had to move onto another question. The witness was then ordered to make his next court appearance on October 21, 2019 to complete giving his testimony.Businessman Khan, 31, of Austin Street, Campbellville, Georgetown, was not required to plead to the charge which stated that on October 28, 2018, at Main Street, Georgetown, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Baljeet, with intent to murder him.Imran KhanAccording to reports on the day in question, at approximately 03:00h, as Baljeet and a friend were leaving a nightclub, they walked between Khan and another man. It was then Khan dealt the complainant two punches to his head and face, causing him to fall to the ground. The accused then took a glass bottle and a drinking glass and smashed them on Baljeet’s face, resulting in injuries and bleeding.Persons who were around were afraid to render assistance as the accused began to kick and punch Baljeet. Baljeet was later picked up in an unconscious state and taken to Woodlands Hospital, where he was treated and admitted. He was subsequently released, but was later readmitted.It was previously stated that Baljeet underwent two surgeries on his face and more were yet to be done.last_img read more


first_img0Shares0000Arsenal’s Pierre Emerick Aubameyang celebrates his goal against Newcastle during their English Premier League match on August 11, 2019.Newcastle, United Kingdom, Aug 11 – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fired Arsenal to a 1-0 win at Newcastle in their Premier League opener on Sunday, providing hope of an improved run this season for Unai Emery’s side.The Gunners finished last season in turmoil after blowing their bid for a top-four place with a disastrous spell in the final weeks. Adding to Emery’s woes, Arsenal were crushed by Chelsea in the Europa League final to shatter their dreams of Champions League qualification.But Arsenal have enjoyed a profitable close-season, with a host of new signings raising morale around the Emirates Stadium.And Aubameyang gave Arsenal fans renewed belief they can get back in the top four this term with a typically predatory second-half finish to give the north Londoners a winning start.Arsenal had a wretched away record last season, keeping just one clean sheet on their travels, so taking three points without conceding was the perfect way to turn over a new leaf.Their often-criticised defence held firm, with centre-backs Calum Chambers and Sokratis keeping Newcastle at bay.Aubameyang’s strike ruined Newcastle manager Steve Bruce’s first match in charge of the club he supported as a boy.Bruce left second-tier Sheffield Wednesday to join Newcastle in the close-season following the departure of fan favourite Rafael Benitez, who had grown tired of a lack of backing from controversial owner Mike Ashley.Bruce’s appointment was hardly greeted with widespread joy on Tyneside and the season started with Newcastle fans staging a protest against Ashley in the streets and then boycotting the match in large enough numbers to leave numerous empty seats around St James’ Park.Emery’s decision to leave new signings David Luiz, Dani Ceballos and Nicolas Pepe on the bench was rewarded by a determined, if only sporadically cohesive, display from his team.There were starts for 19-year-old academy graduates Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock, but Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac were absent after two men were arrested following a fresh incident after the pair were the victims of an attempted car-jacking in July.– Cool finish –Arsenal’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan battles for the ball with Newcastle United’s new signing Joelinton during their English Premier League match at St. James’ Park on August 11, 2019.Joelinton made his first Newcastle start after his club-record £40 million switch from Hoffenheim and the Brazilian striker needed to impress to lift the gloomy mood on a rainy day in the north-east.He had his first sights of goal when he flicked a header just wide from Matt Ritchie’s cross and then blasted straight at Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno.Jonjo Shelvey went even closer for Newcastle as the midfielder hit the outside of a post with a stinging strike.Henrikh Mkhitaryan squandered a golden chance to give Arsenal the lead, the unmarked midfielder firing wildly over the bar from 10 yards.After a quiet start, Arsenal star Aubameyang, the joint top-scorer in the Premier League last season, sprang to life when he tested Martin Dubravka with a powerful strike after superbly controlling Mkhitaryan’s long pass.It was a warning that Newcastle failed to heed as Aubameyang put Arsenal ahead in the 58th minute.Ainsley Maitland-Niles was the provider, making a timely interception of Paul Dummett’s under-hit pass to Jetro Willems and surging away from inside his own half.Unfurling a pin-point pass that curled over the back-tracking Newcastle defence, Maitland-Niles found Aubameyang in space and the Gabon striker took a touch before clipping his cool finish past Dubravka.Ivory Coast winger Pepe, Arsenal’s £72 million club-record signing, and Spanish midfielder Ceballos, on loan from Real Madrid, came off the bench for the last 20 minutes.The new boys didn’t make much of an impact as Arsenal’s much-maligned defence took the plaudits.0Shares0000(Visited 25 times, 2 visits today)last_img read more


first_imgThere is no doubt that there have been plenty of concerns for the French side over their record 222 million euro signing since he joined from Barcelona in 2017.The 27-year-old forward has helped PSG to two titles in a weak Ligue 1 but has failed to inspire them to the heights in the Champions League, the main reason for the Qatari-financed club indulging in such a massive outlay in the first place.He is generally respected by the fans but not loved. Indeed there was some jeering when he was substituted during Friday’s win over Lille, his first game in six weeks following a hamstring injury.Neymar ‘doesn’t do things by halves’ says PSG and Brazil teammate Marquinhos © AFP / LUCAS BARIOULETPart of the antipathy was his exerted and ultimately failed efforts to secure a transfer back to Barcelona during the summer.Marquinhos, however, is in no doubt about the commitment that his fellow Brazilian brings to the Parisian cause.“Ney has always been thorough,” says the 25-year-old central defender.“He is someone who doesn’t do things by halves. It shows on the field. When he takes the ball he wants to be decisive.“Once he’s on the pitch, even after all that happened during the transfer window and the other stories, he’s back on the pitch to win, to score, to make a difference.“He’s not hiding. He proves that he is totally committed alongside us.”Neymar’s return on Friday was his first appearance for PSG since October 5, having suffered a hamstring injury playing for Brazil against Nigeria a week later.It was just the latest spell on the sidelines for the world’s most expensive player, who has featured in barely half of PSG’s matches since signing from Barcelona in 2017.– Positive outweighs negative –His decision to fly to Madrid to take in the Davis Cup tennis last week did not go down well with coach Thomas Tuchel but it marks just another blimp in the Brazilian’s sojourn in France, unfairly according to Marquinhos.“There are other things to say as well. He worked well during the week, he did everything right,” says Marquinhos.“I think we should put more emphasis on the good things he does rather than the negative things.‘We should put more emphasis on the good things he (Neymar) (R) does rather than the negative things,’ says Marquinhos (L) © AFP/File / GEOFFROY VAN DER HASSELT“If you put all this in the balance, the positive things that he does (are superior) but there are always some negative points that people want to talk about because it is Ney! And when you speak about Ney, it resonates around the world.”“As a friend, he always does good things but we don’t talk about them.”Tuesday’s game against Real Madrid comes with PSG already qualified for the last 16. But playing at the Santiago Bernabeu will serve as an indicator of whether PSG can finally be considered genuine Champions League contenders.It may also offer a clue as to whether Neymar is finally going to live up to the 222 million price tag which has weighed heavily on him in big games over the last two years.“I hope for that especially,” says Marquinhos.“He always wants to perform, to win. He’s a real competitor, not just in football. In everything he does, he wants to be the best, that is always in his head.“If he hasn’t been in recent years, he is certainly going to want to show it this season.“I hope it’s going to be a very good season for him and for us.”0Shares0000(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Neymar has ‘matured’ according to his PSG teammate Marquinhos © AFP / FRANCK FIFEPARIS, France, Nov 25 – When Paris Saint-Germain travel to Spain on Tuesday to face Real Madrid in the Champions League it will be with a Neymar who has, according to his teammate Marquinhos, grown up.“Neymar has lived things that have matured him as a person, and as a player,” the PSG vice-captain told AFP.last_img read more


first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonBlack-haired and brown-eyed, Ala’a spoke to the 31-year-old American in the limited English he had learned from the sisters. He recalled the bombs that struck government buildings across the Tigris River. “Bomb-Bing! Bomb-Bing!” Ala’a said, raising and lowering his fist. “I’m here now. You’re fine,” the captain said. Over the next 10 months, the unit returned to the orphanage again and again. The soldiers would race kids in their wheelchairs, sit them in Humvees and help the sisters feed them. To Southworth, Ala’a was like a little brother. But Ala’a – who had longed for a soldier to rescue him – secretly began referring to Southworth as “Baba,” Arabic for “Daddy.” MAUSTON, Wis. – Capt. Scott Southworth knew he’d face violence, political strife and blistering heat when he was deployed to one of Baghdad’s most dangerous areas. But he didn’t expect Ala’a Eddeen. Ala’a was 9 years old, strong of will but weak of body – he suffered from cerebral palsy and weighed just 55pounds. He lived among about 20 kids with physical or mental disabilities at the Mother Teresa orphanage, under the care of nuns who preserved this small oasis in a dangerous place. On Sept. 6, 2003, halfway through his 13-month deployment, Southworth and his military police unit paid a visit to the orphanage. They played and chatted with the children; Southworth was talking with one little girl when Ala’a dragged his body to the soldier’s side. Then, around Christmas, a sister told Southworth that Ala’a was getting too big. He would have to move to a government-run facility within a year. “Best-case scenario was that he would stare at a blank wall for the rest of his life,” Southworth said. To this day, he recalls the moment when he resolved that that would not happen. “I’ll adopt him,” he said. Before Southworth left for Iraq, he was chief of staff for a state representative. He was single, worked long days and squeezed in his service as a national guardsman – military service was a family tradition. His great-great-great-grandfather served in the Civil War, his grandfather in World War II, his father in Vietnam. The family had lived in the tiny central Wisconsin city of New Lisbon for 150 years. Scott was raised as an evangelical Christian; he attended law school with a goal of public service, running unsuccessfully for state Assembly at the age of 25. There were so many reasons why he couldn’t bring a handicapped Iraqi boy into his world. He had no wife or home; he knew nothing of raising a disabled child; he had little money and planned to run for district attorney in his home county. Just as important, Iraqi law prohibits foreigners from adopting Iraqi children. Southworth prayed and talked with family and friends. His mother, who had cared for many disabled children, explained the difficulty. She also told him to take one step at a time and let God work. Southworth’s decision was cemented in spring 2004, while he and his comrades watched Mel Gibson’s film, “The Passion of the Christ.” Jesus Christ’s sacrifice moved him. He imagined meeting Christ and Ala’a in heaven, where Ala’a asked: “Baba, why didn’t you ever come back to get me?” “Everything that I came up with as a response I felt ashamed. I wouldn’t want to stand in the presence of Jesus and Ala’a and say those things to him.” And so, in his last weeks in Iraq, Southworth got approval from Iraq’s Minister of Labor to take Ala’a to the United States for medical care. His parents had filed signatures so he wouldn’t miss the cutoff to run for district attorney. He knocked on doors, telling people he wanted to be tough on criminals who committed injustices against children. He never mentioned his intention to adopt Ala’a. He won office – securing a job and an income. Everything seemed to be in place. But when Southworth contacted an immigration attorney, he was told it would be nearly impossible to bring Ala’a to the United States. Undaunted, Southworth and the attorney started the paperwork to bring Ala’a over on humanitarian parole, used for urgent reasons or significant public benefit. A local doctor, a cerebral palsy expert, a Minneapolis hospital, all said they would provide Ala’a free care. Other letters of support came from a minister, the school district, the lieutenant governor, a congressman, chaplain, a sister at the orphanage and an Iraqi doctor. “We crossed political boundaries. We crossed religious boundaries. There was just a massive effort – all on behalf of this little boy who desperately needed people to actually take some action and not just feel sorry for him,” Southworth says. He mailed the packet on Dec.16, 2004, to the Department of Homeland Security. On New Year’s Eve, his cell phone rang. It was Ala’a. “What are you doing?” Scott asked him. “I was praying,” Ala’a responded. “Well, what were you praying for?” “I prayed that you would come to take me to America,” Ala’a said. Southworth almost dropped the phone. Ala’a knew nothing of his efforts, and he couldn’t tell him yet for fear that the boy might inadvertently tell the wrong person, upending the delicate process. By mid-January, Homeland Security called Southworth’s attorney to say it had approved humanitarian parole. Within three hours, Southworth had plane tickets. He hardly slept as he worked the phones to make arrangements, calling the U.S. embassy, hotels and the orphanage. His Iraqi translator agreed to risk his life to get Ala’a to the embassy to obtain documentation. Like a dream, all the pieces fell into place. Southworth returned to Iraq for the first time since a deployment that left him emotionally, physically and spiritually exhausted. His unit had trained Iraqi police from sunup to sundown; he saw the devastation wrought by two car bombings, and counted dead bodies. Mortar and rocket attacks were routine. About 20 in his unit were wounded, and one died. He knew that nothing could be taken for granted in Baghdad. So when he saw Ala’a in the airport for the first time since leaving Iraq, he was relieved. “He was in my custody then. I could hug him. I could hold him. I could protect him. “And forever started.” They made it to Wisconsin late Jan. 20, 2005. The next morning, Ala’a awoke to his first sight of snow. He closed his eyes and grimaced. “Baba! Baba! The water is getting all over me!” “It’s not water, it’s snooooow,” Southworth told him. Police found Ala’a abandoned on a Baghdad street when he was about 3 years old. No one knows where he came from. In all his life in Iraq, Ala’a saw a doctor 10 times. He surpassed that in his first six months in the United States. Ala’a’s cerebral palsy causes low muscle tone, spastic muscles in the legs, arms and face. It hinders him when he tries to crawl, walk or grasp objects. He needs a wheelchair to get around, often rests his head on his shoulder and can’t easily sit up. Physical therapy has helped him control his head and other muscles. He can now maneuver his way out of his van seat and stabilize his legs on the ground. “I’m not the same guy I used to be,” he says. He clearly has thrived. At 13, he’s doubled his weight to 111 pounds. Ala’a’s condition doesn’t affect his mind, although he’s still childlike – he wants to be a Spider-Man when he grows up. Ala’a’s English has improved, and he loves music and school, math and reading especially. He gets mad when snow keeps him home, even though it’s his second favorite thing, after his father. At first, he didn’t want to talk about Iraq; he would grow angry when someone tried to talk to him in Arabic. But in the fall of 2006, Scott showed Ala’a’s classmates an Arabic version of “Sesame Street” and boasted how Ala’a knew two languages and could teach them. Soon he was teaching his aide and his grandmother, LaVone. LaVone is a fixture in Ala’a’s life, supporting her son as he juggles his career and fatherhood. One day, she asked Ala’a if he missed his friends in Iraq. Would he like to visit them? Big tears filled his eyes. “Well, honey, what’s the matter?” LaVone asked. “Oh, no, Grandma. No. Baba says that I can come to live with him forever,” he pleaded. “Oh, no, no,” he grandmother said, crying as well. “We would never take you back and leave you there forever. We want you to be Baba’s boy forever.” Southworth knew once he got Ala’a out of Iraq, the hardest part would be over. Iraq had bigger problems to deal with than the whereabouts of a single orphan. On June 4, Ala’a officially became Southworth’s son. Though he was born in the spring of 1994, they decided to celebrate his birthday as the day they met – Sept.6. Life has settled into a routine. Father and son have moved into a new house with an intercom system, a chair lift to the basement and toilet handles. Southworth showers him, brushes his teeth and washes his hands. He has traded in his Chrysler Concorde for a minivan – it was too hard to lift his son out of the car. In October, the Wisconsin’s deputy adjunct general gave Southworth, now a major, permission to change units because of Ala’a. His former unit was going to Guantanamo Bay for a one-year deployment, and he didn’t want to leave his son behind, at least for now. He hopes one day to marry to his longtime girlfriend and have more children. He may run for Congress or governor someday – he’s already won re-election once, and he plans to run again next fall. Not everything is perfect. Ala’a never encountered thunderstorms in Baghdad, and the flash-boom reminds him of bombs. He is starting to get over it, although he still weeps during violent storms. But Ala’a – who picked out his own name, which means to be near God – knows he’s where he belongs. Southworth always says Ala’a picked him, not the other way around. They were brought together, Southworth believes, by a “web of miracles.” Ala’a likes to sing Sarah McLachlan’s song “Ordinary Miracle” from “Charlotte’s Web,” one of his favorite movies. His head and body lean to one side as he sings off-key. “It’s just another ordinary miracle today. Life is like a gift they say. Wrapped up for you every day.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more


first_imgSAN BERNARDINO — When a friend set up Josh Henderson on a blind date in college, there was little indication it would be the best thing that ever happened to him. It was. Henderson, now the Aquinas High School football coach, met his wife, Amy, while attending Azusa Pacific University. The couple has three children Josh (4), Abby (3) and William (1) and they live in Mentone. Henderson was the coach and driving force behind this season’s Aquinas team. The program, under Henderson, won its second CIF-Southern Section title in six years, defeating Ontario Christian 14-7 in the title game at Aquinas. In light of the Hendersons’ investment in Aquinas football, it was fitting that Josh and Amy spent a poignant moment after the school’s victory against Ontario Christian. The couple embraced for a long time at midfield, before Henderson met with a knot of reporters to discuss the school’s historic second section title victory. Amy acknowledged that holding down a job (she sells real estate), rearing three young children and being the wife of a prep football coach is challenging. “It’s tough,” she said. “But Josh makes a point to spend some good quality time with the kids every day. As for me, I knew what I was getting into when I got married. I just do it, and somehow it works.” Aquinas is glad, because it has a gem of a coach in Henderson, the Fontana High School graduate who won two league titles at Amabassador Christian before landing at the small Catholic school. Henderson worked wonders at tiny Ambassador, including handing then-formidable Arrowhead Christian a stunning 7-6 upset loss in 1998. The 1993 Fohi graduate had some great players and teams at Ambassador, but by 1999 he was on the move to Aquinas, at the suggestion of his former Fontana coach, Dick Bruich. “Aquinas was letting coach Mark Burns go, but I asked Mark about the school, and he had positive things to say about it even though he wasn’t happy with the situation,” Henderson said. “I was hired as coach halfway through the 1999-2000 school year.” Henderson was still green as a coach but hard-driving and dedicated. His fervor rubbed off on the impressionable Falcons. Aquinas also oozed with talent that season, led by the likes of 2000 CIF D13 Player of the Year Glenn Ohaeri, along with running back/defensive back Obie Amajoyi and linebacker/tight end Jeff Langdon. That team hit a speed bump two-thirds of the way through the season when the school reported itself for using a 14-year-old player in a varsity game without the proper paperwork. At first CIF determined Aquinas would forfeit six games. But then the section reversed field, only making the Falcons forfeit a 48-0 victory against Ontario Christian. The Falcons made the playoffs, and the rest was history, the school’s first section title. Henderson knows he was not Bill Walsh at that point in his career. “I didn’t know that much football, but I worked hard and was dedicated,” he said. “I pushed the kids pretty hard, and they did everything I asked.” Henderson has become a more complete coach since then. He also had plenty of help this season from high school teammate Jeff McCarthy, along with ex-Fohi star Nick Matheny, Mike Nelson and Jordan Brusig. The dedicated group of assistant coaches all own pieces of Henderson’s Coach of the Year award. “They’re a big part of our success and are all fully committed,” Henderson said. Henderson will be back at Aquinas in 2006-2007, but it’s hard to say what will happen after that. He’ll be a credentialed teacher in the not-too-distant future with an impressive coaching resume that includes three league titles in eight years and two section titles. “I’m not planning on leaving right now,” Henderson said. “I’m excited about the near future of Aquinas football. The program has never had this much momentum with so many boosters and parents being so supportive and willing to pitch in.” Henderson’s greatest supporter, though, continues to be wife Amy. Together they have made for a winning combination that has pushed Aquinas to the top once again. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But she’s all alone a lot and often has to bear the brunt of managing the household. “She’s the best thing that ever happened to me. She has a lot of patience and is sort of an old-fashioned woman, different from the girls I used to date in Fontana. When I met her, I knew that I couldn’t let her go.” The Josh & Amy love story is just one of the sub-plots in Aquinas’ amazing 2005 season. The Falcons went 13-1, with their only loss to Big Bear. They were ranked No. 1 in the state among small schools by calhisports.com and were chosen as the state team of the year by the same Web site. Because of Aquinas’ accomplishments, Henderson is The Sun Coach of the Year. last_img read more

The enforcement order relates to the erection of a wind turbine without planning permission.The work on this development commenced on Monday but immediately ran into difficulties when the lorry containing part of the turbine tower slid into the verge on the narrow country road at The Tullies”.It is understood that another lorry containing another part of the turbine was involved in a road traffic accident in France en route to Donegal.The turbine is currently partially erected. The enforcement notice at the site orders the “said development to cease immediately” and “remove the unauthorised wind turbine in its entirety including all constituent parts from the subject site”.However North West Wind Ltd has told its investors in a memo that the work at the site is “repair work” and legal advice given to it was that planning permission was NOT required.Sources say the issue could now become embroiled in the courts.  WIND FARM BOSSES AND COUNCIL IN LEGAL BATTLE OVER NEW TURBINE was last modified: September 5th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:disputeDonegal County CouncilLoughderryduffwind farmlast_img read more

As stated previously, everyone has a right to protest, and the democratic rights of people do not end at the ballot box,”“Those elected to serve the people must do so in the interests of the people who put them there, not on behalf of their parties.“We as citizens have a duty to call our government to order when it is clear that they are serving in the correct capacity whenever this happens, not just at election time, and one year on from the last election, it is clear that this government have blatantly lied to the people, and consistently gone back on their promises from the last election, and hindsight is 20:20.” Mr Stewart added: “If people had the option again, I doubt very much if this government would have the same majority. Public anger is palpable, but attacks on the Gardai are cannot be justified.”Hours after the protest disrupted his party conference Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore argued the Government acts only in the public interest.The Labour leader defended Government austerity measures, which have resulted in tax hikes and cuts to the welfare and education system.“There is one thing about the Labour Party and this Government that nobody can deny: whatever decisions we make are made in the public interest and no other,” said Mr Gilmore.In his keynote speech at the party’s centenary-marking conference, he said the Government had pulled the economy back from the brink and prevented Ireland from becoming a “banana republic”. During the protest several hundred people broke through security lines to picket the Bailey Allen building at NUI Galway, where the conference was being held.They carried a coffin draped in the Irish flag as a battering ram, chanting: “They say cut back, we say fight back.”ATTACKS ON GARDAI: DONEGAL PROTESTORS CONDEMN GALWAY VIOLENCE was last modified: April 15th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:ATTACKS ON GARDAI: DONEGAL PROTESTORS CONDEMN GALWAY VIOLENCElast_img read more
