I was present at the founding meeting of the Right2Water campaign in 2014 in Leinster House and I was present again today in Leinster House at the Oireachtas Water Committee meeting when it became clear that a majority of members are now in favour of abolishing these water charges and are also opposed to any charge for so called “excessive use” of water.

Hundreds of thousands of ordinary Irish people took to the streets to defeat this unfair double taxation.

While it’s early days yet, your opposition to these charges, your protest, your opposition to meter installation, your non-payment campaign has put us on the verge of an historic victory.

But beware, “there’s many a slip between the cup and the lip” and we must remain vigilant.

Keep up the good work.
