Change in the air as 80,000 take to streets of Dublin
An estimated 80,000 people took to the streets of Dublin today (Saturday 20 February) in a pre-election demonstration and ‘Festival for Change’ organised by the Right2Water and Right2Change campaigns.
Commenting, Unite official and Right2Water/Right2Change coordinator Brendan Ogle said:
“The huge turnout at today’s demonstration, on the final Saturday before the General Election, sends a clear message to the outgoing Government that public anger at water charges remains unabated and will be reflected in the ballot boxes next Friday.
“But it was always clear that the hundreds of thousands who have taken to the streets of our towns and cities over the past eighteen months have not just been protesting against water charges.
“Water charges have been the tipping point for many people – but they are just one manifestation of the austerity policies pursued by the outgoing Government and the previous Fianna Fail/Green coalition.
“Today’s event also heard from two homeless women who took to the stage with their children to tell the crowd what it’s like to be denied one of the most basic rights in a civilised society: a secure home in which to raise a family.
“So far, 106 candidates have signed up to the Right2Change Policy Principles – the principles which would underpin a new progressive Government. Today, many of them came to Dublin and took to the stage to say “Another Ireland is Possible”.
“This coming Friday, February 26th, people in every constituency will have a chance to vote for one or more ‘Candidates4Change’. Another Ireland will become possible on polling day”, Brendan Ogle concluded.
The Sunday World report estimates that 20,000 turned out for the water charges and anti-austerity protest. It states that the rainy weather was a factor.
