''Ryanairdontcare Campaign's Banners Not Welcome''
Protest 2 started at 8.45am on 4th July 2012 at Dublin International Airport..3 banners and 2 hand held signs were being displayed at the main entrance to the airport.
I was amazed how many cars sounded their horn in support of my protest.Even the Irish themselves hate Ryanair management.
At about 10.15am airport police arrived and this police officer came over to speak to me and asked what i was doing,could he not see it was a protest.........He informed me that i needed a permit to protest at the airport.Never been told that before,a permit maybe one more revenue for the Dublin Airport Authority..''were do i apply''.

This officer waved and took off to which was a great site to see.I was okay to have this protest today so i thought.At 10.35am the arrival of two airport police cars,three officers and one dog division,So they were not happy with Ryanairdontcare Campaign's protest..One officer told me i was not allowed to be at Dublin airport protesting.I did inform the officer that i was standing on public land and not airport land to which he informed me that the banners were located on airport railings which was true..I pointed out to these 3 officers that i would take the banners down and stand holding them on the public land i was standing on,which was my right so i thought,then section by-law blar blar blar was issued to me and not to return to Dublin airport within 24 hours otherwise i would be arrested.I asked could i take a photo of them to which they declined..Getting arrested for a Peaceful protest would not be right so i left within 30 mins..What was interesting was soon as i took the last banner down they all drove off even though i was still by the airport entrance for 30 more minutes as members of the public started talking to me about Ryanair....Looks like Mr O'Leary is not a happy chappy with my banners which has the true information about exploitation at Ryanair.. As this protest was going to be all day, off i went to catch the 41 bus to Dublin City Centre for protest 3,
