"Water Charges will be on the way unless people speak out" - Kelly

“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.
Deputy O' Snodaigh, who came down to launch the Wexford Sinn Féin campaign against water charges, had this to say;
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.”
Enniscorthy Sinn Féin councillor Johnny Mythen also attended the crowded meeting, which was packed beyond capacity, leaving some attendees standing outside and viewing the meeting through the front window.
“There's no good side to water charges," Cllr Mythen said. "They are not being introduced for water conservation, nor are they being brought in to improve the quality of our water distribution network, which is entirely inadequate. They are being proposed because this government believes in only one mantra; bleed the ordinary person dry to pay for the crimes of the bankers and speculators.”
