Irish public sector general strike 2009 photo gallery

"Official Strike"

A selection of images from picket lines across Dublin during the nationwide public sector strike on the 24th of November against government plans to slash public services with 4 billion euro in cuts in the December budget.

While many sections of the media tried to claim workers used the day to go shopping in Newry, pickets were visible on every street in the city with private sector workers showing solidarity with beeps, cheers and even cups of coffee.

Trade unions have announced plans for a second national strike in public sector next week if they do not reach agreement on a pay deal in talks with the Government.
