When in Dublin, do as the Greeks do

There were scuffles this evening outside Dáil Éireann as a protest march passed. They were protesting against the Government's plans to inject millions of euro in the banks of the state. They were calling for the money to go to job creation and so on instead.

Note the Éirígí flags. They have another protest planned for May 15th, the anniversary of the executation of James Connolly. It will be an "anti-NAMA" protest and take place at Anglo Irish Bank in Dublin. It will be interesting to see if there will be trouble again.
Anglo Irish Bank has been a focal point for previous demonstrations.
