#JobstownNotGuilty rally takes place on eve of 'adult trial' - video

The Saturday before the start of the show trial of the 7 adults accused of the 'false imprisonment' of then Labour Leader Joan Burton at Jobstown a solidarity rally took place in the centre of Dublin.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Central bank where they heard speeches before marching through the center of Dublin. The video has extracts from those speeches and - towards the end - footage of the march leaving.  The 7 accused face sentences of up to 14 years for their part of the community protest that saw a sit-in in front of the Labour leaders car, delaying her leaving the area by a couple of hours.  A huge task force of Gardia were assigned to investigate the protest who then conducted dawn raids against the houses of over 20 water charges activists from the area.
