Protest, Boycott, Elections- use every tactic to beat Irish Water

Irish water is in big trouble. More than half the population have refused to pay the water charge. The Government’s spin is unravelling.

They said water charges were for conservation but you could leave your tap running and get a grant of €100. They said Irish Water would be ‘off balance’ from the State’s revenues and that this would allow them to invest more.

But Eurostat, the EU statistic agency, ruled this was a scam. Therefore if we keep up the pressure we can finish off Irish Water once and for all.

Protest

The Right2Water Campaign has called a protest on Saturday August 29th and we need everyone to build for that protest. Let’s show the Government that this movement hasn’t gone away. We need a series of protests leading up to the Budget.

Boycott

The second bill is on it’s way but don’t worry- even if you paid the first bill you can join those who will boycott the second. With a non-payment rate of 57% for the first bills we are going strong.

They cannot take anyone to court until they have a debt of €500- which would take two years to build up- and by then the elections will have come and gone.

The movement should make a clear call for people to boycott the second bill.  Sinn Fein, who are not calling for the boycott, are way behind their own rank and file and the majority of people.

Don’t give in to fear tactics from the bullies in Government. Stand up – don’t pay. It’s simple!

Elections- a chance to kick out the establishment

If we want real change in this country then we have to vote out the establishment parties of Fianna Fail, Fine Gael and Labour. We need to elect parties like People Before Profit who represent a new way of doing politics- putting people power at the heart of a strategy to change this country once and for all.
