Date:

Wednesday 9th December saw the greatest budget attack on workers in Ireland in a couple of decades with services and pay being slashed. Many unions and other organisations called protests outside the Dail from the early morning to the late evening. WSM members took part in these protests throughout the day and provided live updates, photos and video from them via our twitter account which you can view or listen to in this article.

A selection of the tweets sent live from the Dail protest, the first is at about 5pm and the run backwards through time till the last which was sent around 1pm. Where they include a URL that URL is a photo, video or audio file. We have embedded some of the video and linked to some of the audio after the tweets
