Sinn Fein Protest Sale of 1916 Memorabelia

Ireland's National Museum was bidding for items unique to that nation's history of rebellion against British rule. (How such items ended up in private hands in the first place is not reported on this short video newsclip, but this sort of thing is a common occurence globally.)

No need to say much more than what's on the v.o. for the video. Sinn Fein protesters, both inside the auction room and out on the street mounted a vigourous protest. After arrests, the persons detained were released.

Thanks to MyFineBooks blog - - for calling our attention to this book-related news item.
