The people of Ballyhea in Cork, Ireland have spent each sunday for 100 weeks marching in protest against the bank debt that Irish politicians have forced onto the taxpayers of the country. The bravery of this town has almost been completely ignored by the Irish Presstitutes but story went international as Aljazeera has reported on it. One community has woken up generating hope and energy for others to follow. 

The European Central Bank has rejected Ireland’s proposals to restructure some of the country’s huge debts.

The government wants to avoid paying tens of billions of dollars over the next decade to underwrite a failed bank.

But one community in southern Ireland is unwilling to accept the terms of the bailout, blaming the government and banks for the economic crisis.
