Sinn Féin urges mass mobilisation tomorrow-Cllr. Daithí Doolan

Sinn Féin's Dublin City Councillor Daithí Doolan urges people to come out in their thousands tomorrow for Right2Water's day of action against the water charges.

Speaking this evening, Doolan said:

"Tomorrow's Right2Water day of action is set to become an even bigger success than our demonstration on October 11th where we had 100,000 out on the streets in Dublin. We have over 70 marches right across the state. From Donegal to Tralee, from Ballyfermot to Galway we will have thousands of people marching demanding that the government scrap the water charges. The feed back from local areas has been very good with new events being added to list by the hour.

"The marches will be positive, family friendly events. We will have music, drama and plenty of colour. The government is grasping at straws with its concessions. People are not fooled by these concessions; they want the water charges scrapped. This government must put the charges in the rubbish bin of history where they belong never to be resurrected again.

"Right2Water are confident that we are winning the battle against the charges. The government have totally underestimated the level of public anger and determination.  We are absolutely committed to seeing this campaign through to a successful conclusion. Tomorrow is only another event in our campaign. If Fine Gael and Labour continue to ignore our demands then we will get louder and louder until they can ignore us no longer.”

"Sinn Féin will continue to play a central role in the Right2Water campaign. We are encouraging all our supporters and their families to turn out in their thousands tomorrow and show this government exactly what we think of their water charges.

"If this government does not act now then they will be going down the drain along with their water charges at the next election."
