A Sinn Fein rally will be just that. What's needed is as broad a swathe of social groups, support groups, political groups, consumer groups and business groups as possible from all over the country. Only then will it be taken seriously. More than a hundred thousand on the streets and no violence.

Is this nationwide?

I think rather than opposing budget cuts, it should be a government out rally.

Most of us have accepted that some cuts will be needed, we just don't trust the crowd that's there to correctly prioritise what can be cut.

I fully support as many anti government demos as possible.
But Budget cuts are not the issue, and protesting against them is only going to strengthen the government.
The real issue is Bank nationalisations, NAMA and socialisation of bank losses.
That is what SF should be protesting about and then they might have some credibility.

Who are SF making the stand against?

Is it FF and the Greens for their running of the country since 2007?

Is it against Europe for the forced austerity? Remember FF and the Greens are just hitting a target set by Europe now.

Is it against the Bondholders? For the awful crime of lending us money that we go looking for every month?

Having a rally is great but like all rallies that have gone before they should clearly define who they're rallying against.

For crying out loud they have no credibility on this one

- because they voted with FF on the bank bailouts!

What part of this do you not understand?

But what if you think the government should get to 3% by 2014?

What if you think SF are pushing to extend the 2014 deadline as purely politically motivated strategy?

I´m well aware of that.
I´m hoping that they will be big enough to realise they have made a huge mistake, ditch their bank nationalisation/marxist ideology and show some leadership.

Protesting budget cuts is ridiculous. Making a U Turn on their former policies would be admirable.

Do the unthinking not have a right to protest too?

What do we want?
The cake we ate!
When do we want it?
Now!

SF voted with the Govt in Sept 2008 like FG, Greens, BECAUSE IF THE BANKS WERE NOT SUPPORTED WE WOULD HAVE GONE LIKE ICELAND IN 24 HOURS. David McWillams etc all supported this move as IT WAS ESSENTIAL AT THE TIME.

Labour didn't vote for it, couldn't offer an alternative, just good old fashioned political point scoring and to hell with the country if it collapses.
