“Water Charges will be on the way unless people speak out and mobilise now to stop them," according to Wexford Sinn Féin councillor Anthony Kelly. Cllr Kelly appealed to the people of Wexford to join Sinn Féin in their fight against water charges at the launch of the Wexford SF campaign in the FAB Community Centre in Ferndale last Monday night. Deputy Aengus O' Snodaigh also pleaded with the people of County Wexford to organise now before its too late.
The Fine Gael/Labour government want to spend €500 million of taxpayer’s money on installing water meters in people’s homes and then charge taxpayers again for the basic necessity of water and the cost of the meter. Ordinary people are already paying for the gambling and crimes of the bankers and speculators. Piling more pressure on struggling families while the wealthy escape punishment is criminal.”
