Right2Water Ireland take part in demonstration in Brussels- Lynn Boylan
Dublin Sinn Féin MEP Lynn Boylan has voiced her support for the Right2Water demonstration taking place in Brussels today.
Speaking today as author of the Right2Water report for the European Parliament, Ms Boylan said:
“After the successful Right2Water demonstration this Saturday in Dublin, Right2Water representatives will be in Brussels today to show solidarity with the European Water Movement.
This group is mobilising to remind the European Commission that it should work for the citizens of Europe, not for corporations.
The Commission must engage with MEPs who are preparing a resolution in defence of the human right to water.
In 2010 the UN declared that water is a human right and the organisers of today's rally are calling that the European Union along with individual Member States make access to water and sanitation a human right and to stop promoting privatisation and liberalisation.”
