Right now.

Outside the Alexander Hotel on Fenian Street in Dublin 2.

Current and former employees of Independent News and Media (INM) and their supporters demonstrate against significant pension cuts at INM. The protest is being organised by Siptu and the National Union of Journalists (NUJ).

The protest is taking place as, inside the Alexander Hotel, INM shareholders hold an extraordinary general meeting (EGM).

    It’d be a shame if a disgruntled employee from that rag (apart from Gene Kerigan) might go postal and actually tell the truth, for once

    To answer Justine’s heartfelt cry – because they want to. There are people who are rich beyond most people’s comprehension, and yet it is never enough, they have no regard whatever for any human being other than those in their immediate coterie.

    Don’t remember McCarthy doing much for the Waterford pensioners,who’s pension fund was gutted by Lord O’Reilly,her pension karma is also empty.

    I had about €10k pension in a pot when I left another newspaper group….
    Worth less then €2k now… been like that since the crash, like.

    We all pensioned !

    Hard to feel sorry for any INM enabler: past or present.

    But the gall of McCarthy writing this as a Murdoch employee…
