Sinn Féin announces ‘Back the Bill’ day of action
The Sinn Féin spokesperson on the environment, community and local government, Brian Stanley TD, has announced details of a Sinn Féin “Back the Bill” day of action this Saturday, June 16th.
Speaking in Leinster House Deputy Stanley said:
“Next week in the Dáil Sinn Féin will introduce a Bill to repeal the Household Charge and reimburse all those who have paid the charge.
“Supporting this Bill on June 20th will consign the Household Charge to the rubbish bin of history.
“A day of action in support of the campaign will take place this Saturday. There will be events in every city and town across the state. Over 100,000 leaflets will be distributed at stalls, pickets and protests. Sinn Féin will be joined at these events by trade unions, community organisations and campaign groups. We will be urging all local TDs, from both the government and opposition to support the bill next week.
“There will also be a ‘Back the Bill’ rally outside the Dáil at 5pm on Wednesday June 20th to coincide with the vote that evening.”
