Anti-water charge protesters gathered in Dublin city centre today to voice their anger in another protest.

Greece's national flag was handed out by organisers to chanting protesters.

The crowd shouted anti-austerity slogans such as "no no, we won't pay" as they gathered on Amiens Street on Dublin's north side after 2pm today.

A garda presence was visible however the protest kicked off peacefully.

The group gathered outside Connolly and will march down the quays where they will meet another group marching from Heuston Station.

The two groups will then converge outside the GPO.
