Professor F.X. Martin on the Supreme Court decision, and the need for political action on behalf of the people.
After yesterday's Supreme Court ruling, it appears that all the legal obstacles to building the civic offices on the site of the national monument have been cleared. The argument may now move into a political phase.
Speaking to David Davin Power, Professor F.X. Martin says that as a mendicant friar he has no means of paying the costs awarded against him by the Supreme Court. He points out that up to 20,000 people took part in the march to save Wood Quay and, in taking court action, he was in a sense acting on their behalf. F.X. Martin also talks about the possibility of him running for election, despite the fact that it is not something he wants to do.
