Thousands march to oppose water charges on April 8th in Dublin - Report
dublin | bin tax / household tax / water tax | news report Monday April 10, 2017 21:01 by wsm - Workers Solidarity Movement
This is a repost of a report by the WSM on the Water Charges protest last Saturday April 8th.
Local anti-water charge groups, trade unions and political parties were in attendance, with speakers from other campaigns present also. Vera Twomey spoke on her ongoing campaign to access treatment for her seriously ill daughter, who desperately requires regular access to the currently restricted cannabis based CBD oil to treat her epilepsy.
It now looks likely that the attempt to introduce a water charge, leading to water privatisation has been knocked back.
This was a mass campaign, 70% of the population were involved in the boycott at peak and protests took place on the streets and in communities all over the country. Hundreds were criminalised through being arrested at the protests. It's essential that charges are dropped and an amnesty declared for all those who took part in this mass campaign that involved most people in the country at peak.

On Saturday 8th April we took to the streets of Dublin once more in what may well be the final march against the water charges. Although it looks like victory on abolishing the charge is near it’s important not to lose sight of the need for an ongoing campaign demanding amnesty for all those facing prosecution for their role in the struggle.
