Jailing of Water Charge Protesters Condemned

By Irish America Staff
April / May 2015

Dublin Sinn Féin city councillor Mícheál Mac Donncha condemned the jailing of five water charge protesters in a statement issued on February 19.

Councillor Mac Donncha said: “The jailing of water charge protesters is deplorable. These are citizens who engaged in peaceful protest as part of one of the biggest mass movements that we have seen in many years. The real culprits are those in government who continue to try to impose unwanted water meters and unjust water charges.”

Mac Donncha continued, “Corrupt bankers, developers and politicians who ruined the Irish economy have been allowed to escape scot free, while ordinary citizens exercising their democratic rights are put behind bars.” ♦
