I didn't know what section to ask this but given that it is related to economic treason I'll set her here.

When is the next protest? And are there localised ones being organised?

Its obvious protest marching will not stop these traitors.

We need Civil disorder, mass strikes and refusal to pay charges. Someone needs to pick up the baton and tell the public what we need to do to stop this madness.

I disagree, We need civil disobedience not disorder, Violence will only play into the establishments hands and lead to people spending long periods in jail and in hospital!!
It needs to a strategy that incorporates Civil disobedience, mass rallies like yesterdays and a political strategy to ensure the people have a choice at the polls and are empowered to use their vote for the greater good. We will only change things when their is a clear left alternative for the people. The Labour party have this within their power. I hope they don't again revive FG by propping them up in the next government.

The march yesterday was a con! ICTU have signed its members up to austerity, their protests are nothing more than a face-saving exercise for its leadership. If these guys were serious about what they were protesting about, they would not be protesting on a Saturday!! But they cant protest Mon-Fri because they have signed up to austerity in Croke Park Deal.

That sounds good. I know where I stand with SF. They have been consistent in anti EU, anti Euro, anti Lisbon, anti IMF and none of them are on the board of directors of the Rothschilds Central Banking System.

Marches are self-indulgent nonsense. And in my case, hypocritical. I was there yesterday, I booed the 100k beards, I shouted shame and out on cue, I braved the cold. But i also voted in the last 3 elections for FF. I therefore share the blame with 850,000 others. I will be voting in the next election - I just don't know for whom, bar that it will be ABFF.
Any party who advocates default gets my vote. None so far.
This is a democracy, where we change our parliament every 5 years or so. Sadly 70% of voters vote for local issues/candidates in national elections (source: an election briefing by Sean Dorgan), so until the system or the people change, we will collectively vote for governments we then turn against (eg FG/labour government has never been re-elected).
So why did I march yesterday? To register my protest against the unstoppable bailout of Bondholders, to do something as an alternative to whining and finally as an act of contrition.

How many marchers do you think you'd get out for that agenda?

I'd have thought that the backbone of yesterday's march would be little nurses and teachers from Sligo, who think their bubble-funded wages should be immune to any adjustment.

Have you a different perception of the situation? I just feel that the only global agenda that the Irish electorate is plugged into is the one led by the marketing division of The Walt Disney Company. The greatest concern of the membership of ICTU affiliates at present is the prospect of the IMF preventing the faithful from participating in the annual pilgrimage to Orlando. A break-up of the euro might mean they couldn't even worship at Disneyland Paris.

Is there evidence to suggest there's more to yesterday's march than that?

well i was there not affiliated to any union as were a lot of people i marched with, we will be there next week even though we are not affiliated with sinn fein, my perception of yesterdays march was the unions would love to take the credit for the numbers but that aint the reality.

Skynews and Youtube.

I was glad to see that turncoat socialist of ICTU...Jack O'Connor got booed by the crowds yesterday...Good for the crowds...However it was only shown by Skynews and on Yourself...It was not shown on RTE-FF-TV...RTE-FF-TV the mouthpiece of Zanu-FF.

I'd march but not in one organised by ICTU as I view them as complicit in the problem.

Or the Shinners or Socialists because I disagree with them and don't want them to feel like I support them.
