Protestors accuse Labour of “burying rural Ireland”  

Credit:  Sunday World | 30th January 2016 | www.sundayworld.com ~~

The Labour Party conference got underway in Mullingar, Co Westmeath on Saturday but it was the protestors outside that grabbed the limelight.

While Tanaiste Joan Burton was rallying the troops inside, a number of people dressed as mourners at a funeral carried a black coffin and flags that read “Labour buries rural Ireland”.

Some wore Joan Burton paper masks while others donned masks with Alex White’s face on them.

The protest was organised by Protect Rural Ireland to highlight Labour’s strong support for wind farm development and associated pylons over the wishes and rights of rural communities.

Addressing the conference on Saturday morning, leader Joan Burton said that “the past five years have been turbulent, to say the least.

“But they have also proven to be transformative, and the priority for progressive voters should be to protect, consolidate, and extend those gains by returning Labour back to Government with a sizeable block of TDs”.
