Protesters march through Dublin over Irish austerity plan

Tens of thousands of people demonstrated on the streets of Dublin, Ireland, on Saturday against the government's austerity plan.

Irish police estimated the number taking part in the largely peaceful demonstration to be about 50,000.

The protests were organized by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU), which has called the four-year plan for spending cuts and tax hikes "savage and regressive."
