    Default Ballyhea 100 weeks of protest

    On 27 January 2013 the 100th protest against the bondholder bailout will take place in Ballyhea/Charleville.

    Charleville-Ballyhea protesters prepare for 100th weekly rally over bank debt - The Irish Times - Sat, Jan 05, 2013

    They have kept it going for all this time and if you agree with them then you should try to be there.

    I don't agree with them.

    We have a much bigger problem with the €50 million a day of new debt - real hard cash - that is being racked up to keep the insiders featherbedded and insulated from the downturn.

    Forget about the IOUs from the banking bubble. They are an irrelevance.

    They're both issues which need to be addressed : the bailout of the banks as well as the ever increasing government expenditure.
    Two separate issues.
    Politics.ie moderators should moderate instead.

    Sorry but I will not be their. All the 'lets do the bondholders, lets get the banks' stuff does not agree with me.

    What's wrong? Are you unhappy when people think differently from you?

    Not at all - they are quite entitled to protest about any issue they wish, however irrelevant it may be
    But I would think it more sensible to protest about the larger and more wasteful issue of Government overspending on PS
    Especially since the Troika have made it clear that they will not finance our PS overspending unless we bailout the banks

    I have great admiration for these people,They believe in something and they are sticking to it. I follow them on Facebook and give them some verbal support. But in truth they are desperately under-supported for the effort they are putting in.

    To listen to people like you , a person might think that the doctors and nurses are throwing buckets of money out hospital windows... been in a hospital lately?
