Scuffles break out during bank protest

SCUFFLES broke out between gardai and a small number of dissident Republican protesters who were among several thousand people demonstrating outside the Dail to demand criminal sanctions for former Anglo Irish bankers.

Gardai were quick to respond when a handful of demonstrators, believed to be members of the Republican dissident group The 32 County Sovereignty Movement, tried to scale the gates of the Leinster House.

About two thousand protesters, including trade unionists, members of the Socialist Workers Party and People Before Profit Alliance, rallied outside the Dail on Kildare Street before marching past the Central Bank to the Pearse Street garda station. There they dropped off letters demanding that the Anglo bankers be investigated.
