  • A cement truck plastered with antibank slogans blocked the entrance to the Irish Parliament on Wednesday as tensions mounted over the country’s debt crisis and enormous bank bailouts.

  • Greenpeace activists unfurled a banner calling on the EPA to “protect people not polluters” at the site of Coal Ash hearings at the Seelbach Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky on Tuesday.
