Started off as a vigil - 22/11/2010

A vigil was organised to meet next to our national monument on Grand Parade, with a few hours notice, in honour of the loss of Irish sovereignty. As numbers grew, so did the need to march on the streets, the anger was palpable at yesterdays announcement that the IMF would now be loaning Ireland, under Brian Cowen's leadership, up to 90bn.

A spontaneous march was quickly organised, as the crowd marched chanting on the streets, traffic stopped to roll down their windows and cheer, and to beep their support. The main chant being; "What do we want?" "Fianna Fail OUT!"
