19 February, 2015 - by Denise Mitchell

Dublin Sinn Féin city councillor for Beaumont Donaghmede ward Denise Mitchell has expressed her outrage at the sentencing today of five anti-water charges protesters.

 Cllr Mitchell said:

 "It is shocking that five water protesters have been committed to prison for peacefully protesting against the installation of water meters.

 I have stood with these protesters daily in my own area and they have always conducted themselves in a peaceful manner.

 This is just another attempt to break up the Anti-Water Tax movement. Communities are appalled at their jailing and will continue to fight this unjust, unfair tax"
