Community Groups will protest across Ireland

Community Groups around Ireland will protest in towns, cities and villages across Ireland about the water charges on Saturday 31 January. Seek them out and join them! The Dublin local groups are planning to all meet up in the City Centre, Please join the protests and keep the pressure up. The temporary lower charges introduced by the government will be withdrawn after the next election and all waivers and allowances will be abolished if they privatise Irish Water which IS their plan. They later plan to charge for waste water! This is on the cards. We must stop abolish these charges and stop this disgraceful act.
Well three tribes...
Well three tribes...

January 31st - Dublin will stand together, as like every county across Ireland, to show we are united in our fight back against #Irishwater - we will not be paying!!

Dublin Protest: We are asking all Residents of:

  • Dublin South and West to gather at Heuston Station and
  • All North Dublin Residents to gather at Connolly Station at 2pm
  • Dublin South & East / Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown (DLR) to gather at Stephens Green on corner near LUAS stop / Stephen Green Center at 1:30pm and then march down to meet the main protest for 2pm

Both groups will march on Either side of the quays to be met by the DLR block at O'Connell bridge. Together they will shut Dublin city down.

For those who wish to travel from the countryside gather at which ever point is closer to you.

There will be NO STAGE, NO SPEECHES, NO CONCERT. Just people standing together to send a message to the Irish Government.

NO CHANCE IN HELL WE WILL PAY FOR WATER
