An estimated 18,000 people marched through the streets of Dublin on Saturday 24 November calling for a fair budget and demanding an end to the government's austerity policies which have unfairly targeted the least well-off in society.
Speaking at the rally Sinn Féin spokesperson on Social Protection Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD said: "The government can continue to target low and middle income earners or it can implement the right policies which would ensure that those who have more pay more."
