Thousands of protesters are expected to march through the streets of Limerick on this Saturday under the ‘We Won’t Pay!’ anti-water charges banner. The march, organised by the Anti-Austerity Alliance (AAA), starts at City Hall at 2pm.
Local politicians have announced their plans to attend, including the Fianna Fáil Cathaoirleach of Limerick City & County Council and the leader of the Labour Party’s team of councillors.
The march will move from City Hall, down O’Connell street, turning right onto Shannon St, and Right against down Henry street, past Arthurs’ Quay park and back to City Hall. It is expected to be largest when on O’Connell Street.
Some marchers are expected to be in Halloween costumes, and when the march arrives back to City Hall they are going to burn some forms from Irish Water, as a statement of their intent to boycott this charge.
