Cab drivers are calling on the government to put a range of financial supports in place for the sector to help drivers get back to work.
They are also unhappy over proposals to stop them from using bus lanes.
Protestors are making their way to Leinster House to voice their frustration. A number of road closures are in place around Merrion Square due to the demonstration.
