Right2Water Donegal say they expect thousands to travel from the county to today’s march against water charges in Dublin.
The event is the latest in a series of demonstrations aginst the imposition of water charges as the first bills are expected to be delivered to households in the coming weeks.
Sinead Stewart, a Right2Water organiser in Inishowen, believes the protest will send another clear message to the coalition Government that the ordinary Irish people have had enough of austerity.
“We as a people have been hit hard by the economic downturn and the subsequent taxes and cuts which have been imposed upon us. The water charges and the establishment of Irish Water was a step too far, and we are committed to defeating this unjust, unfair and unwarranted attack on our water resources” she said.
She continued “A large turnout from Donegal on Saturday will not only restate our core assertion that water is a human right and underline our continuing demand for the total abolition of water charges. It will also send a clear message that we refuse to be bullied and intimidated into acquiescence.”
Details of Saturday’s event are on the various local Right2Water Facebook pages as well as www.right2water.ie.Tags:
