J31 - Water Charges march fills both sides of Quays

Dublin city centre came to a complete standstill this afternoon (31/01/2015) as thousands of people marched in the city centre as part of a day of action that saw dozens of marches all over the country. The two photos here were taken seconds apart and show the north & south quays packed with protesters.

We will be uploading more photos and video from around the country as our members file them but today certainly illustrated the mass support for boycott of the water charge. The media and politicians were hoping for a significant drop in numbers but the numbers coming out on the streets across the country were comparable with the three previous mass protests. We need to make sure we spread organisation into every estate and village around the country for the battle to come.

More photos from the day
