Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Government won’t buy off the people with water concessions -Ellis

19 March, 2015 - by Dessie Ellis TD


Sinn Féin TD Dessie Ellis has reiterated both the party’s and his own personal belief that the country is at a key moment in the Right2Water campaign and that the government’s meagre attempts at spin will not dissuade the people from opposing the charge.

Deputy Ellis said:

“Sinn Féin are mobilising the length and breadth of the country for Saturday's Right2Water march. The feedback we are getting is positive. We aim to fill O'Connell Street and send out a very clear message to the government. The demonstration will be a peaceful, family friendly event just like every other Right2Water march.”

“The people have not been bought off by concessions or dazzled by their spin. We are very focused on abolishing water charges and dismantling of Irish Water. This Saturday is a key moment in our campaign. Sinn Féin will continue to work with others until this campaign is brought to a successful conclusion.”
