Government must listen to people and end water charges - Adams

1 November, 2014 - by Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin Leader and Louth TD, Gerry Adams, speaking after a huge anti-water charges rally in Dundalk today said:

"Today's Right2Water day of action was a huge success, with positive, family-friendly demonstrations right across the state.

"It is clear that the Fine Gael/Labour Government has totally underestimated the level of public anger at the imposition of domestic water charges and the determination that now exists to defeat them.

"The establishment of Irish Water and the imposition of domestic water charges has been a fiasco from the start.

"Citizens have had enough of relentless austerity, new taxes and charges.They have said loudly and clearly that they will not accept the water tax.

"This Government must listen to the people and end its imposition of water charges."
