Poll: Were gardai right to remove Occupy Dame Street camp?
The structures erected by protestors at the Central Bank plaza were removed in the early hours of the morning by gardai and Dublin City Council. Do you agree with that action?

GARDAI DISMANTLED THE Occupy Dame Street camp at around 3.30am today. Aided by employees of Dublin City Council, the officers removed all trace of the structures which had been erected by protestors since last October.

As shown in our pictures, taken during rush hour this morning, only a number of protestors and a similar number of gardai remained at the plaza in front of Central Bank.

Do you agree with the removal of the Occupy Dame Street camp?
