Should Ireland Join Too?
 
# 1 : Wednesday 18-5-2011 @ 14:00
 
 
Many people are beginning to take over the streets in some other european cities, with the current situation in Ireland (not much better than Spain), do you think you should camp and take over the streets too? what do you think?? A new May of 68 coming?

(they talk about 2,000 people when you see clearly around tens of thousands in the video)

Take over the streets and do what???
Stop people from going to work and paying their bills??
Block streets so businesses who are already struggling might actually be forced to close??
There is nothing I hate more in this world than banner waving, hippy gobshites

I really should have been a riot cop.

Mainly in Spain and Portugal, and also a few hundreds in Berlin, Paris and London and Brussels

Probably you won't see it on the "news" from the "official" media (TV, newspapers, etc...)

Barcelona yesterday and today, its happening now:

Mainly you can only follow it in twitter and FB, not very different to Egypt in its moment:

I think this can be interesting if it goes europewide.

Mainly Spain and Portugal, where the banks have taken over the democracy, just like in Ireland, you'll be paying the bank's debts for years to come and nobody is going to do anything about it?

In terms of mass media manipulation is not very different to Egypt, people are broadcasting from the street and the police is using GSM Jammers, the public cams brodcasting and pointing to those areas have been stopped too.

Well I seen a video from Spain and all I can say is fair play to them they know how to go out and protest peacefully as well. I think Ireland says alot but does not speak or march alot.

I think we need to stand up to the corrupt states and tell them that we don't stand for any of this no more and get them out. God know's there is alot of them here in Ireland and the sooner we get them out the sooner we will get out of this recession.

Ireland is a great country of talkers but nobody seems to do anything. We need more people on the streets and then the government might take note.

I dont think any comparison to Egypt can be taken seriously.

Who are we marching against, the people we put in 3 months ago!

No not really just against the IMF/EU to get a fairer bail out and to tell them that we won't allow them to walk all over us as a small country. It seem's that France and Germany are bullying us into putting up our corporation tax BEFORE they agree on any lowering of the rate, and it seems no one in this country is doing anything about it yes we are all talking about it but what action has anyone done on it??? ZERO we need to stand up to these and tell them who they are messing with.

I've seen a few Irish flags in Plaza Sol in Madrid, I assume they are Irish

The banks, why do you have to pay for the banks debts when Ireland has one of the highest unemployement rates of Europe? (or even if you didnt). If you go bankrupcy will the goverment go rescue you so you don't become a homeless?

In a few years when we think back about this situation we will realize how absurd and unfair it was.

Ireland and Europe in general need more people like you

I think most people realise how absurd and unfair it is now.
