September 17th sees the next major national march against the 'we can't believe they are not dead already' water charges. We respect that many anarchists will be marching with their local groups but for those who are not we thought it would be good to have an anarchist bloc and march together, everyone can then meet up at the end.
The traditional starting points have been Connolly and Heuston train stations but because of the Apple tax scandal the organisers have added a thrid starting point for this one, the big glass building at 70 Sir John Rogerson's Quay. For those who don't know something like 700 companies are registered out of this address including some whose Irish operations claim revenues in the billions. It's a big building but not that big, we can only presume some sort of Dr Who Tardis effect is in operation.
Right2Water says of this meetup point that is at "Sir John Rogersons Quay is the home of tax evasion in Ireland. There will be a number of speakers about tax evasion at this event before joining up with the two other Right2Water assemblies for a major demo in the city centre."
Are you there at 1.30 on the 17th. If you are on Facebook you can join our 'Anarchists on the anti-water charges national demonstration' Facebook event. If you are marching in one of the other blocs with a local group we will be announcing an end of march meet up point nearer the date.
