A huge contingent of people from across Donegal are expected to travel to protest in Dublin today against the proposed water charges.
Up to 20 buses are understood to have been booked as large numbers of local people join in the Right2Water national demonstration outside Leinster House.
Many others from Donegal are understood to be joining the march but traveling to Dublin using their own personal transport.
The protest is the latest action in the ongoing campaign against the introduction of water charges.
Donegal Right2Water PRO Gary Doherty says in the region of 15-20 buses will be leaving Donegal tomorrow.
Speaking today he said “We are aware of at least 15 buses leaving Donegal, organised by groups such as Right2Water, Sinn Fèin, Can’t Pay Won’t Pay and others.
“We are delighted with the commitment that the people of Donegal are showing to the Right2Water campaign, and the fact that such numbers are travelling to Dublin tomorrow is a testament to the level of feeling in the County against these water charges.”
He continued “The protest will prove to the Government once and for all that no concessions will be enough to buy our acquiescence to water charges. We have seen in the last number of weeks that citizens in Donegal have been amongst the most active in the country in opposing the instalation of meters. We will not be bought by cheap promises by this coalition which has repeatedly failed the Irish People. We are taking no more.”
“The thousands outside Dáil Eireann tomorrow will hopefully signal the death knell for the Government, and the beginning of the end of Irish Water.”
Those travelling to Dublin are being urged to contact their local Right2Water organiser for departure and pick-up times.Tags:
