The Waterford Campaign against Household and Water Tax at an aggregate meeting of activists on Tuesday the 13th of Dec, discussed the Legislation underpinning the new H/Hold Charge, and unanimously agreed to call for the non Registration and non Payment by Residents of the 100 euro Household charge due to be imposed in January 2012.
Activists also agreed to hold a protest and lobby of Councillors at the City Council Budget meeting on Monday the 19th of December at 4.15 pm.
We called on Councillors to demand the abolition of the Household tax, by Min for the Environment Phil Hogan that will adversely affect all those hit hardest by the last four years of austerity, and to demand, that no prosecutions be taken by City Council Officials against Householders refusing to Register or Pay this Odious Tax.
The Waterford CAHWT welcomes the commitment of those TDs and Cllrs who have declared their intention not to Register or Pay, and re iterates its belief,that it will be the actions of ordinary people in refusing to pay in large numbers, that is the key to dismantling this odious tax.
It was further agreed the Waterford CAHWT should continue its series of Public Meetings in early January, in the City, Tramore, Dungarvan, and Portlaw, with a mass canvass of all Householders to begin later that month.
Next Activist meeting is on the 7th of January and all are welcome.

We have all been told, if we haven't already experienced at first hand, the beauty of the location. We know about the exclusiveness of the hotels that the various leaders are going to be staying as well as some of their security detail. We know about the menus from which they will be choosing from. There is little about summit meeting that the …
