3.00 No Borders On the Way To Leeson St for a spot of Squatting?
3.00 From The Newswire: Dublin's practically deserted, I've never seen it so quiet on a Saturday. March is at the Bridge by Heuston station now, Don Baker and King Sativa are due to play, interspersed with speeches. Guards are clustered in fours, chilling out and chatting about the football. no hint of problems in the city centre. March was peaceful, lots of "Fianna Fail are wankers" stuff, red/black banners and rainbow peace flags. Mostly its the usual suspects, there is as yet no visible contingent from overseas. Mind you they could be disguised as tourists in shades and t shirts, hand in hand on the streets or smoking pensively outside the doors of the bars. Business is definitely down, maybe Dublin's gone to the beach. Some Mammies are bringing kids to the Cyprus welcome out in Bray, ice creams and tunes. Who knows? It's Mayday, It's Bealtine, the dawn of a glorious summer. As the teenagers chant: "hooray hooray the first of May, outdoor sex begins today!" Rally due at GPO at 6 local time, organisers pissed off because of closure of Parkgate street and lack of access to the park. A couple of doors down from the GPO on O'Connell Street you will find Easons, a long established bookshop. Inside the front entrance they have a display of titles well known to anti globalisation activists - Naoim Klein, Michael Moore, Joseph Stiglitz. Looks like they're hoping for a bit of business from the hyped masses of protestors but all they've got are empty tills and smiling shop workers enjoying the easiest saturday a shop worker could possibly have.

2.35 Bridge at Heuston across to North of Liffey Sealed Off By Police - Lots and Lots of Them
