    Default The protest in Dublin today, did it achieve anything?

    Thousands marched while tens of thousands shopped. Are people really THAT angry?


    Has the march achieved ANYthing?


    Thousands take to the streets of Dublin to protest against austerity - National News - Independent.ie
    NO votes for Labour, NO transfers either. You sold the people down the river, payback time!

    Just seeing it on the news, looks like they got a decent sized crowd,

    Poor misguided fools

    I'm sympathetic to the sentiments of the marchers but a small crowd, which 8-10000 is, can be detrimental to the issue.

    Yes, they are - that's quite a mob on the streets!

    Don't know, let's wait until all the facts are in.

    Free speech doesn't exist. Anyone who doubts this and shoots off the mouth must be prepared to deal with the consequences, especially in Ireland. petunia

    Well unless it made a €15 billion annual deficit vanish, then no.

    It has sent out the message that Ireland is looking at a general strike. Just as we are getting back on our feet as a country it appears that the elites in the unions are on the verge of setting us back.

    I wish too the anti-austerity crowd would present themselves as what they are - the "increase tax on everyone except us" march.

    I expected AT LEAST 25,000 to march.

    Marches against "living within our means" organised by union scum are the opposite of what we need,

    They are effectively shouting, "give us more of other peoples money"

    Lambs led by wolves!

    In what sense are we "getting back on our feet"?
