Protesters to 'cripple capital' in cuts fury

PROTEST groups have vowed to "bring Dublin to a standstill" in protest at Government austerity measures.

A blockade could be on the cards for the capital following protests in the north-west of the country.

Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of several towns and villages across Co Donegal yesterday.

Now they say they'll bring a massive protest on to the streets of Dublin -- and urge protesters from around the country to join them.


Truck drivers in the north-west will also meet next week to set a date for a 'blockade' of the capital as well as the country's ports.

A wide range of groups were represented yesterday at the demonstrations in Letterkenny, Buncrana, Raphoe, Ramelton, Convoy, Gleneely and Castlefin.

Ryan Stewart, of the Abolish VRT group, told protesters in Letterkenny: "We are not part of the 26 counties and we are not part of the six counties. Co Donegal has been ignored and we won't sit back anymore."
