Thousands gathered from the length and breadth of Ireland to protest at the Labour Party Ard Fheis at the continuing austerity. From the household tax, to hospitals, education, neutraity and the treaty. It was a glorious sunny day. Much was made of the ‘violence’ but keystone cops isn’t a message that some want put out there.
It was a magnificent day of protest with upto 4,000 marching, some media claiming 5,000, with about a thousand pushing through a small police line up to the door of the Labour Party conference.
Every age was there and the anger stronger and more bitter than at the Fine Gael Ard Fheis which took place two weeks previously.
