“What hurts me the most is why is the taxpayer paying for the IMF. Why are we bailing out the banks. These are the people who took the risk, let them take the hurt, let them feel the hurt.” That is the common refrain of the tens of thousands of people who took to the streets today in Dublin, protesting against the government’s rescue of various European banks (and Goldman Sachs) investment losses. More from RTE: “GardaĆ­ said that around 10,000 people started the march, however the crowd swelled to around 50,000 people as it moved down the quays. Speakers at the march had estimated that the crowd was between 100,000 and 150,000. A small group of around 400 protestors are currently at the front gates of Leinster House. Some 60 gardaĆ­ are lining the footpath in front of the building, with crash barriers erected in front of them.”
