DUBLIN, Ireland - Thousands of people gathered at the GPO on Dublin's O'Connell Street on Sunday to protest Covid-19 restrictions and vaccine passports.
Protesters marched from Parnell Square to D'Olier Street, then to the General Post Office through Westmoreland Street.
On a makeshift stage erected in the middle of the street, many speakers addressed the protestors.
Speakers attacked the government for corruption and attempting to exert control over people's life, claiming that the anti-Covid actions were worse than the sickness.
Many people who marched for "Truth and Civil Rights" held posters criticizing the media's coverage of the outbreak.
The audience erupted in applause when one of the speakers, Ms. N Faolin, criticized the treatment of people who did not have vaccine passports.
"Over the past twenty months, our society has evolved into a dictatorship, a totalitarian dystopia. It has become intolerant... hate speech towards unvaccinated people has become the norm and is now rising exponentially." She said.
