Public anger at water charges remains unabated

The huge turnout at last Saturday's demonstration, on the final weekend before the General Election, sends a clear message to the outgoing Government that public anger at water charges remains unabated. Cllr Declan Bree, told SligoToday

"Water charges have been the tipping point for many people - but they are just one manifestation of the austerity policies pursued by the outgoing Government and the previous Fianna Fáil/Green coalition.

“The Right2Water campaign has expanded to a Right2Change movement, calling not only for the abolition of Irish Water but commitments on housing, employment, health and public debt.

“Now, for the first time in our history, people are being offered the opportunity to vote for a real alternative and to vote for genuine change.” Cllr Bree said.
