Opinion: If people don’t come out on December 10th water charges will definitely go ahead, writes Daniel Crown

The people spoke last month. They gave a direct order to Kenny and Co. that they not only won’t pay the water charges, but that with over 150,000 people on the streets, this government has no mandate to govern the State.

With Christmas coming, it makes sense that people’s priorities are getting into the festive season, but people need to keep the water charges at the forefront of their minds – at least until after December 10th.

The government has tried to time this immoral tax nicely with an effort to try and disguise another month of protests with Christmas getting in the way, but people have to think beyond Christmas for a minute. They have to realise that these charges will start to be billed very soon after Christmas. They have to realise that now is the only time we have to try and stop them – and we need as many people on the streets as possible.

We need to get at minimum the same number as last month, circa 150,000, or even more. We need people to set the day aside so that the government know that this issue is big enough to even halt the run-up to Christmas.

We need to stand together, and we need to do it on December 10th.
