DCTU March… November 24, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in Economy, Irish Politics, The Left.
…Good turnout, Gardai estimate between 8k and 10k, but I’d have put it higher, and more so than last year (and to judge from this, many many more so).. Some nice visuals on the spectacle side of things. A very visible ULA presence. SP and SWP and PBPA too, WSM naturally. Union representation not bad – though could have been much better in parts. Economists Against Austerity as well. A noticeably big SF contingent. Saw the IRSP there, éirígí, 32CSM, and got a copy of Workers Hammer – no less, and a multitude of others (next year a CLR banner 😉 – or at least something to get those from the CLR together a bit easier!). And great to meet a wide range of people who comment and participate in the CLR at it. Any thoughts on it overall?
And lo, a conflict in the official count too… Interesting.
