Thousands Expected in Dublin For Anti-Water March Today

Thousands of people are expected to take to the streets of Dublin today in what organizers are stating will be the biggest anti-water protest yet.

It has been estimated that in excess of 30,000 people will march in Dublin today for the Right2Water protest. Organizers have been working closely with gardaí to ensure that the protest goes ahead without hitch.

The protest will gather outside Dáil Eireann at 12.30pm today. A number of roads in Dublin city centre will be closed, including Molesworth Street, Kildare Street and other roads will close as the march moves through the city.

The main part of the protest begins at Heuston Station at 11.30am, and will see protestors march down the quays to the Dáil.

Speakers will address the crowds, with organizers stating the protest is “family friendly” and music acts will provide entertainment.

People are expected to travel from all over the country, with eleven buses reported to be leaving Galway this morning while members of the Detroit Water Brigade have come over from the USA to take part in the demonstration.
