Several thousand people have attended a trade union rally against proposed spending cuts in the centre of Belfast on Saturday.
The march began at St Anne's Cathedral before making its way to City Hall.
Earlier, the finance minister Sammy Wilson described the protest as a waste of time.
He said unions were "giving false hope to people that somehow or other by holding placards they can avoid these financial choices".
He also accused the unions of using the cuts to gain political clout.
