'Jail the bankers' protests today

'Jail the bankers' protests will take place in Dublin and Galway today.

The People Before Profit Alliance have organised a demonstration in Galway city outside the former Anglo Irish Bank building.

They say that the Anglo Tapes, released this week, were the final straw and are calling for the Government to do more to hold those responsible for the banking scandal to account.

Dette McLoughlin of the People Before Profit alliance in Galway explained what route the protest would be taking.

"A lot of people are very, very angry over what they've heard, the revelations in the Anglo tapes" she said.

"What we've done is called a public demonstration. It will be a march from the former Anglo Irish building in Galway, that's on Foster Street, and we'll be marching though to town to the AIB bank on Shop Street.

"And basically what we're saying is: 'We want action - immediate action'."
