‘Walking around in a circle may be considered a public nuisance’

The Beef Plan Movement has stressed that with respect to its guidelines relating to acceptable behaviour at a protest, the following should be noted with respect to processions (walking around in a circle).

“As part of a peaceful protest, walking around in a circle is allowed and this right is protected by the freedom of expression, peaceable assemble and freedom of association guarantees in the Irish constitution.”

“Walking around in a circle may be considered a public nuisance and the opinion of the most senior guard on duty at the protest location should be asked if they consider the protest to be causing a public nuisance or not.”

Gardaí

The guidelines state that the opinion of the most senior guard, on this point, should be asked on a regular basis.

“If the most senior guard on duty indicates that there is no public nuisance occurring, then continue to walk as you had been doing.”

If the most senior guard considers that walking in a circle is considered a public nuisance and you are told this by the guard, and they ask you to stop and stand aside, then do so immediately, the guidelines state.

“Under no circumstances is anyone to ignore a request from a guard. Do exactly what the guard tells you to do.” the statement concluded.
