Irish workers say no to cutbacks!

The trade union movement will today begin to consider its next moves following the success of yesterday's demonstration.
Over 100,000 people took to the streets of Dublin in protest at how the Government is dealing with the recession.
Workers from across both the public and private sectors marched from Parnell Square to Merrion Square to highlight how they're being hit by the economic crisis.
Protestors voiced their anger at the controversial pension levy and the banking scandals.
On Tuesday the Irish Congress of Trade Unions will meet to decide what to do next.

That the once upon a time tiger economy of Europe--would you believe, Ireland's -- is now racked by working class discontent tells us a little something about the epoch we are entering.

It also suggests that maybe our own ACTU could lift its slavish game. What you reckon?
