Doolan - supports successful Ringsend protest

14 January, 2005


Sinn Féin Representative for Dublin South East, Councillor Daithí Doolan, speaking after this morning's Anti Bin Charges Protest in Ringsend, congratulated local residents who "came out and ensured that all rubbish was collected despite City Management attempts to do otherwise."

Cllr. Doolan said:

"This morning's protest has once again shown how a local community can rally together and challenge the powers that be. Local residents came out and ensured that all rubbish was collected despite City Management attempts to do otherwise. Here in Ringsend, we have decided to make a stand against the bully boy tactics of City Management and, with my full support, residents will continue to campaign against this unjust double tax."

In conclusion Cllr. Doolan called on, "City Council Management to abandon this disgraceful policy of leaving rubbish pile up in an attempt to force people into paying this double tax. This morning has proven that this tactic will not work, yet it has the potential to create a health crisis in our communities which can and should be avoided." ENDS
