Trade unionists lead march against government cuts in London, Glasgow and Belfast. In Glasgow, protester Mel Kelly, 47, from Irvine, said:
"The rich are getting prosperity and we're getting austerity. We all contribute, we all pay 50% of our wages or more in tax, yet the money is going to the banks instead of to the people and the services. We don't pay taxes to bail out banks, we pay tax for the sick, the elderly, the homeless."
