This photograph was taken on O’Connell Street Dublin, during the (1916) 2014 Easter Rising Commemoration. Which ironically has impeded on our weekly citizens arrest, of that very same failed republic. It has to be stated here that the wording of our constitution, which protects our rights as citizens, along with the wording of the proclamation of the Irish republic, have all been rendered impotent. Not because they lack of any depth, meaning, or substance. But because of the apathetic, indifferent Irish people, who do not insist on the merits of such words. Therefore the (1916) commemoration symbolises not glorious recognition, but national shame.
