OPPONENTS of the IMF/EU bailout package last night warned of 10 days of protests against the deal.

The announcement was made by the Enough campaign yesterday as a bailout team arrived in Dublin to assess the Government on its fulfilment of the terms of the €85bn programme.

The campaign, set up by a number of left-wing organisations, calls for the deal to be scrapped and for austerity measure to end.

"Whoever says that the Irish don't protest will be eating their words," said ULA TD Richard Boyd Barrett, above, in Buswells Hotel, Dublin.
