100,000 protest in Dublin over economic crisis


www.msnbc.msn.com

LONDON - Around 100,000 people filled the streets of the Irish capital Saturday in protest of the government's handling of the country's economic crisis, police said.

The march through the heart of Dublin — organized by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions — was meant as a warning shot to the government, which wants to cut public sector pay even as it pumps billions of euros into its troubled banks.

The government has argued that wage reductions are needed to keep Ireland's ballooning deficits under control and reassure international markets that Ireland isn't spiraling toward a default.
