A leaflet from Sinn Féin calling for an end to water charges and encouraging readers to participate in the Right2Water marches.
Sinn Féin is opposed to the introduction of water charges and will campaign side by side with communities to abolish them. Water is a right for all our citizens and is paid for already through general taxation. With your support these charges can be defeated.
If they are not defeated by people power on the streets, Sinn Féin have given a clear commitment to reverse them. Sinn Féin is also pressing for the right to water to be enshrined in the constitution, including a provision to prevent any future privatisation of water services in this state.
