National Water Charge Protests - Saturday 31st Jan 2015
Community Groups will protest across Ireland



Community Groups around Ireland will protest in towns, cities and villages across Ireland about the water charges on Saturday 31 January. Seek them out and join them!

The government are still planning to privatize Irish Water. If and when this happens, then extra charges will be brought in for your waste water as well. This will be estimated to be equal what goes into your house. After the next election, the government will allow the charges to go up to the target amount of at least €400 to €600 per year per household. This means every time you shower, flush a toilet, clean your hands, wash your clothes, wash your dishes, it will cost you. In poorer areas this will lead to people flushing their toilets less and washing less and cleaning their clothes less and will become a public health issue over the longer run. We must stop this madness now and affirm that water is recognised as a human right and that the Irish government abolish domestic water charges. Please spread the word.


If you care about the future of water for yourself and your children then get out there and make your voice heard on Saturday 31st Jan

Yesterday afternoon, Shell security personnel watched helplessly from their compound as Shell to Sea supporters overturned bog tracks that were laid to enable heavy machinery to build the next stage of the Corrib gas pipeline.

Since Tuesday Shell has been trying to work on this most controversial part of their project, despite the fact that a judicial review of the Bord Pleanala permission for it is due this week. The campaigners from all over the country displaced more than 30ft of bog tracks.

Last night and this morning, Shell were blocked from accessing their newly created compound in Aughoose for 16 hours after a protester locked on underneath an IRMS security van that was blocking the entrance. Members of the local community and Rossport Solidarity Camp kept vigil throughout the night, worried that IRMS might try to use similar violence to the night that Willie Corduff was beaten up while under a lorry at the Glengad compound in 2009. read full story / add a comment
