On Saturday April 8th, the Right2Water Campaign are giving one final push with another National Demonstration before April’s Oireacthas Water Committee Meeting whose recommendations will decide if water charges are scrapped or retained.
The last demonstration in September saw crowds of 80,000+ take to the streets of Dublin in yet another Mass Protest to Abolish Unfair Water Charges.
Sinn Féin Cllr Joanna Byrne is urging those of you who oppose water charges to “get out and support this event”. She says “Nothing but the full and complete abolition of water charges, and the dismantling of Irish Water, will satisfy the democratic wishes of the Irish people. We have had an election that returned a majority of TDs who ran on a platform of ending water charges. The time has come for those TD’s to stand to their mandate.”
The rally will assemble at 2pm at both Connolly Station, and Heuston Station in Dublin.
