#OccupyDameStreet - Time to get your marching shoes on

Join us on Saturday at 2pm at The Garden of Remembrance
#OccupyDameStreet, Dublin, Thursday 20th October
A slow day, was under the weather (metaphorically) for most of it, no doubt as a result of spending much of the last two weeks under the weather (literally), and only spent a short time in the Camp today. The big news of the day is, of course, that it is now fourteen days since #OccupyDameStreet began, and tomorrow sees another march from The Garden of Remembrance at 2pm down to the Camp on Dame Street, accompanied by the indefatigable Mr Billy Bragg. I last saw Mr Bragg in Trafalgar Square last year, the day after the UK General Election, calling for the introduction of Proportional Representation, not the sexiest subject to sing a protest song about but, fair play, he had a go. Say what you like about NAMA, at least its a pretty easy word to rhyme with.

Jinx Lennon in fine form
#OccupyDameStreet, Dublin, Thursday 20th October
Occupied Dame Street has become the place for musicians with a conscience to be in Dublin, last night we were joined by the ever-rousing Jinx Lennon on his way to a gig at The Working Men's Club, and he performed an altogether unique megaphone set, which somewhat surprisingly, was the most audibly comprehensible gig of his that I have been to. He was pretty hoarse by the end of his set, so apologies to anyone in The Working Men's club if his gig was poo, you can always come along to Dame Street tomorrow and hear Billy Bragg try and find a rhyme for 'Special Purpose Vehicle'.

Have sink, will wash-up (at #OccupyQualityStreet)
#OccupyDameStreet, Dublin, Thursday 20th October
Alas, as the crowds stomped their chills away to the sound of an angrily strummed guitar, I did the washing up. #OccupyGalway might be all toasty and warm with their fancy-pants gazebo, but do they have a semi-working al fresco kitchen sink? I think not. It is pretty damn inspiring to see the folks in Galway, #OccupyCork and elsewhere bringing this Movement to life across the country. The 99% are everywhere!

See you all tomorrow at 2pm at The Garden of Remembrance.
