The Campaign Against Household and Water Taxes Group have issued a statement regarding their ‘strategy’ against the household charge

In a statement to the media CAHWT said they: “are pleased to announce the launch of the strategy against the household charge. We would like to thank and congratulate the large numbers of people who did not register or pay. Like almost one million households across our land, many if not most of you have taken a giant and historic leap towards a better and fairer Ireland. Those paying by direct debit can still cancel and those who have paid in full can join us in making change by choosing not to pay the much higher tax next year, less than six months from now.

“At a local level in Co Louth there is a strong campaign against these unjust taxes. Regular people like you and I, neighbours and friends, have come together to stand up to unfair taxes that will in no way benefit our communities, but will no doubt drive our households into debt and poverty.

As part of our campaign, we have designed an Information Pack containing contact details for CAHWT support teams throughout Co Louth and a brief outline of why the charges are unjust, addressing many of your fears and concerns. The Information pack will be made available at Public meetings throughout the County. The first meetings take place in the Redeemer Family Resource Centre, Dundalk on July 10th at 7pm. In Dunleer, the first public meeting takes place on July 12th in The Boys Club at 8pm. Further meetings will be announced throughout the month.
