News is coming in that upwards of thirty students have occupied the Department of Finance in the centre of Dublin with several hundred supporting them in the streets outside. Tens of thousands of students are demonstrating as part of the USI protests against plans to introduce fees, these students carrying out the occupation appear to have broken away from the main demonstration which is taking place around the corner in Merrion square.
It has been reported that eggs were thrown at the building and that four Gardai horses have just arrived on the scene.

USI President Gary Redmond has condemned the protesters but he did not condemn the violence from the Gardai. However Gary Redmond is known member of the Fianna Fáil party, the same party that lead this country to ruin and which is now stripping it bare whilst leaving the culprits completely untouched.
