We grabbed the good vibes in Dublin!

By coincidence the Global Frack Down Day happened to be organised on the same date as the Right 2 Water March, Staurday 11 October 2014
Gardai estimated that up to 100,000 people attended the Right 2 Water march in Dublin that day. People from all over the country came to protest against the privatisation of our water.

By coincidence the Global Frack Down Day happened to be organised on the same date as the Right 2 Water March, Staurday 11 October 2014
Gardai estimated that up to 100,000 people attended the Right 2 Water march in Dublin that day. People from all over the country came to protest against the privatisation of our water.

After attending the talks/workshops on TTIP (info here http://ttip.ie/) Fracking Free Ireland and the No Fracking Ireland network joined the march and handed out 3,500 flyers informing people about fracking and the risks itDublin poses to our country’s domestic water supplies.

After marching with ‘Dublin Says No’ we took a prime spot on O’Connell St. to have our message seen by all, loud and clear while the march continued to circle us for two hours.

It was an amazing day of unified grassroots protest, with ordinary people from communities all over the country joining together to stop the privatisation of our water. This campaign is growing and we were very proud to be part of it today. It was a really inspiring day of protest, well done to all who turned out – the people of Ireland are awake and standing up!
