Why did so few attend protest march?

The march held in Dublin last Saturday week was a great success and I was delighted to be part of this “gathering”.

However, I must state my total dissatisfaction with the hundreds and thousands of unemployed like myself, and the middle class who are forever cribbing about the state of this country, and the worthless politicians past and present who treat us like dirt, while protecting the very wealthy.

So my question is, why were there only 20,000 on the streets protesting? Stop leaving it to the same people to do the fighting for you and get on the streets with the rest of us. Stop being the hurlers on the ditch.
