We demand our Right2Water Referendum.
Advocate for and ensure that our Right2Water Referendum is held to protect water services. We demand that a new Article in enshrined in Bunreacht Na h’Eireann;
Article 28 Section 4:2.1
‘The Government shall be collectively responsible for the protection, management and maintenance of the public water system. The Government shall ensure in the public interest that this resource remains in public ownership and management.’
Why is this important?
We want the people's voice to be heard respecting water and sanitation services in Ireland, and a referendum be held.
Across the globe ordinary people have undergone tremendous hardship and suffering when water services are privatised. Water is a human right and must never be under the control of 'for profit' companies.
Publicly owned, funded and managed water and sanitation services, free at the point of use, is the only way to guarantee access for all.
