Occupy PwC Dublin Wasn’t Even Trying

People aren't protesting like they used to. I mean, who has the energy anymore? Drum circles are EXHAUSTING. Then there's the pepper spray. Who needs that? Plus it's winter; Not exactly prime protest season in the northern hemisphere. Still, some guys in Dublin gave it a go today but it was a pretty sorry effort: 

Up to 30 members of an anti-household and water charge group took part in a sit-in at PricewaterhouseCoopers office on Dublin’s North Wall Quay today. The occupation lasted one hour, before members of Campaign against Home and Water Taxes voluntarily left. The protesters remained in PwC’s reception area during the demonstration. Gardaí were called but no arrests were made.
They couldn't even bother to put on facepaint like that one dude at Occupy PwC D.C. The only thing I can come up with is that they found out what the some of the employees like to do in their spare time and figured the firm wasn't all bad.
