John Lennon Airport this week saw the latest protest from RyanairDontCare Campaign against Ryanair SCAMMERS,which was a NEWS BLACK OUT.
The day started at 11.15am on 23rd August 2011 with Mr John Foley,founder of RyanairDontCare Campaign who gained access to the airport with 2 ladders and started to climb on to the roof of the building.
Within Minutes the Protest banners were in place and no Police in sight.It was over one hour before Police arrived even though 4 Ryanair aircraft crew were looking at the banners.
I was asked by Merseyside Police how long i was planning to protest to which i said,as long as i could stay up here.I was never asked WHY was i protesting there which was strange but maybe the banners said it all.
I was never told to come down by any police officer.
After 15 hours,about 2am i was cold and tiered and fell asleep and was woken up at 4am by Inspector Ruddock who had climbed onto the roof through a escape hatch,hand cuffed me and to be honest nearly gave me a heart attack.I must say Officer Ruddock was very professional and did release the hand cuffs whilst i was still on the roof.He did ask me not to resist which i did comply with as these two officers had put their safety at risk to end this protest.Inspector Ruddock had met me before on my last roof top protest in Liverpool. http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/liverpool-news/local-news/2010/02/09/man-s-rooftop-protest-against-ryanair-on-top-of-speke-s-crowne-plaza-hotel-100252-25798364/
so he new these issues were real and the aim of the protest was peaceful.
I was kept in police custody for 28 hours and taken to court as the police objected to bail.My Solicitor from MJP Solicitors in Liverpool was great and got me conditional bail..Next court date 8th September 2011.
A news black out from Liverpool Echo,which was expected and local radio was in place as a way of turning a blind eye to the Abuse of our Children by Ryanair ''MONEY SPEAKS......So no more.....
A court date is in place and a Not Guilty Plea was placed at Liverpool Magistrates Court...
