‘Lift the Burden’: Tens of thousands march against austerity in Ireland (VIDEO) — RT/TY Laura

February 10, 2013 Permalink.


Tens of thousands of people have marched through cities in Ireland in
a massive show of anger against severe austerity measures and high
costs of living.

The Irish Congress of Trade Unions,which organized the rallies,
claimed more than 100,000 people attended, with some 60,000 marching in
Dublin. Demonstrators also protested in Cork, Galway, Limerick, Sligo
and Waterford.

Tough cuts were implemented to please Ireland’s creditors in the wake
of the country’s banking crisis. It has been relying on a joint EU-IMF
loan since 2010.

The “Lift the Burden” march took place despite the Irish government’s
recent bank debt deal with the European Central Bank. It saw 28 billion
euro worth of costly promissory notes swapped for long-term sovereign

Financial advisor Marco Pietropoli explained to RT that the Irish per
capita have ended up with a far bigger bill than the most countries who
had a bailout. “Therefore they are suffering a great deal more.”

Pietropoli says that Ireland’s situation is one of the most difficult
in the EU and that Dublin’s holding of the bloc’s presidency isn’t
likely to make things any better.

“I don’t think the Irish with the presidency are necessarily
going to be able to exert much pressure or much influence to actually
change the situation in Europe, because the power remains with the
