Cannabis Protest Clips

Last week we saw between 30,000 – 100,000 people (depending on your source) take to the streets to vocalise their unhappiness with Irish Water and much more.

Down through the years cannabis activists and enthusiasts have taken to the streets to protest the prohibition of cannabis.

While these protests haven’t quite reached such numbers, they have generally been peaceful, colorful and good spirited days.

These events have been great networking events for activists who have gone on to work on various projects.

Here is a collection of clips and speeches from the marches in Dublin and Cork down through the years.
