With the General Election just six days away, the anti-water charge protesters have chosen today to bring the city to a standstill and make their point. 

Starting in Parnell Square, the march has made its way down O'Connell Street, the Quays and back to College Green, where a stage has been erected and speeches are currently being delivered. Among those speaking is Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams. 

There are no official numbers for people attending yet, but the target was 100,000 and even the rain doesn't seem to have dampened spirits too much.
