10's of thousands take to Dublin streets against water charges on Aug 29th - video


One more tens of thousands took to the streets of Dublin as the governements attempt to force water charges on the population looks more and more like it has failed.  This high quality footage of the march in progress will give you a sense of the size and composition of the marches.


The audio with the report is largely extracted from The Water Revolt in Ireland by Ferdia which was published in the Irish Anarchist Review earlier in the year. On the march itself the WSM members & supportes demonstrated 1000s of copies of a special 4 page leaflet saying "When we break Irish Water, we will clear the rubble and grow real solidarity, real co-operation and real community in its place." You can read all of the Solidarity Times leaflet for August 29th Water Charges march
