Ireland’s Streets Turn to Rivers of People, 1 Million, Wiping Out New Tax on Water #IrishWater

Never were so many demonstrating on the streets of Swords.
Ireland’s government blackmail on the Irish people – accept a new tax on water or increase in property taxes – has failed already, as the streets all over Ireland turned into rivers of people standing up and saying: “No means fecking No“. All in all it seems that in the entire Ireland, 1 million people took it to the streets to say they won’t pay and stop water privatization. This means a third of Ireland participated to #IrishWater protests.



 

Some images and messages from the participants to today’s protests, via #IrishWater, Water Meter-Let’s fight back.

It rained, of course; Dublin was shut down during the protests.

“No way, we won’t pay“@IrishWater #watercharge #irishwater






The battle of the population of Ireland against water meters has been ongoing for years now, and it grew in intensity in spite of all media propaganda and manipulations to turn the tide in the favor of government’s plans to cut the income of the working people by forcing them to pay more for what they already pay. The resistance and the opposition to the government’s plans is well understood in Ireland, since the meters and the new tax on water are seen for what they actually are: privatization of a fundamental basic need, the water. The resistance took all forms possible; from blocking police and employees to go to houses and instill water meters, to marches, rallies and speaking up against it.

The resistance of the Irish workers against capitalists’ economic, political and social war against them are largely unknown in the western world, possibly because the 4 million people of Ireland have been put to pay the worst for the banks’ robberies since 2008:

Defying all physical laws and all logic, they ended up with debts tens of times higher than the rest of the western world, and their accusation that these debts are fake and artificial are justified by the realities of their own lives. Ireland makes up 0.9 percent of the EU population, their economy makes up 1.2 percent of EU GDP, yet the Irish people have already paid 42% of the total cost of the EU banking crisis. US Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner has pushed for this and wikileaks have already revealed the reason.

Take a look at the numbers, and compare the dreadful silence about what capitalists have done to the Irish people with the huge media coverage granted to Greece (this too, fully justified).

Were these fake debts a revenge for Irish people being the first to denounce the robbery of the 1%? It would not be surprising if it was so. They closed down Anglo Bank; occupied it and made theft known, before anyone in the West realized that the “financial crisis” was in fact a huge engineered robbery of the poor by the rich:




Proof to that is that the number of billionaires has doubled during and “thanks” to the “financial crisis”.
So, yeah, it’s not just about the water; it’s just another battle against the economic terrorism they have been subjected to. The result of this is that so many people commit suicide in Ireland, that the state has conspired to hide the cause of death and has issued new death certificates where the cause of death is no longer mentioned at all.

More reading: 
Odious debt
In international law, odious debt, also known as illegitimate debt, is a legal theory that holds that the national debt incurred by a regime for purposes that do not serve the best interests of the nation, should not be enforceable. Such debts are, thus, considered by this doctrine to be personal debts of the regime that incurred them and not debts of the state. In some respects, the concept is analogous to the invalidity of contracts signed under coercion.
