A leaflet from Richard Boyd Barrett advertising a Right2Water national demonstration in 2015.
The enormous popular protest against water charges and austerity continues and is spreading across the country. We are winning. The protests have terrified the government and forced them to make a number of u-turns.
In a desperate attempt to end the popular revolt, they have been forced to reduce the charges, bribe us with a grant of €100, extend the deadline for registering over and over again, and withdraw the threat of cutting off people’s water.
However, we do not want water charges changed we want them scrapped totally and the super quango that is Irish Water must be dismantled.
