Feb 9 2013 ICTU march against Debt & Austerity (video)

Depending on whose figures you believe, somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000 people took to the streets Sat 9th February to register their opposition to the foisting of private bank debt onto the shoulders of ordinary workers, the refusal to tax the wealthy and the accompanying austerity agenda which has led to wage cuts, job losses, cuts in services and a plethora of increased taxation measures all of which have disproportionately affected those on low and middle incomes.
