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.

Does he/she have a problem with Government overspending to the tune of €12bn p.a. on the PS including Health/Welfare/Education
They really havent a clue what they are on about

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.

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

Kinda like Fianna Fáil then?
well kind of.. but if you asked Fianna Fail would they give up their own time for no money to walk around the streets in the rain out of principle you'd be laughed at. I guess that's the difference. doing something when there is nothing in it for yourself and doing something to keep your place at the pigs trough..

I once asked the organisers to explain the legal mechanism of default. Not only did he not know, he thought nuts and bolts questions were irrelevant. I won't be there.

Yea, he's obviously just one of the many simpletons whose children's children will be paying off over 50 BILLION in a bank debt they never actually incurred.

Well while they do their thing, why don't you get up off your fat arse and organise a protest to highlight the matters that concern you. Instead of giving out and criticising people who actually try to do something, you might consider doing something yourself.

Kinda like Fianna Fail canvassers then?

(and Amateur-FF too. Let's not forget their kleptocratic tendencies, even if they are second rate compared to their heroes)

The banks pay off their debt from their own resources.

The real problem is the €100 Billion of cash that the Government has blown on overspending.
