Local politicians will be challenged on their attitude to the move by the government to allow local authorities to refuse to collect the bins of people who are boycotting the double tax bin charge at public meetings being held across South County Dublin in the next weeks.
Politicians to be challenged on 'Protection of the Environment Bill' at public meetings
Local politicians will be challenged on their attitude to the move by the government to allow local authorities to refuse to collect the bins of people who are boycotting the double tax bin charge at public meetings being held across South County Dublin in the next weeks. A series of 3 meetings has already been organised by the 'Campaign Against refuse Charges', to which local TDs have been invited.
The meetings already planned are:-
Other meetings are also being organised in Lucan, Palmerstown, Rathcoole and elsewhere.
These meetings are organised to coincide with the debate in the Dail on the 'Protection of the Environment Bill 2003'. Section 22 of this bill will give South Dublin County Council- and local authorities throughout the State - the right to leave bins uncollected where a charge has not been paid.
In leaflets being distributed door-to-door across the county, the Campaign Against Refuse Charges describe this new law as "..a blatant attempt to smash the widespread boycott of the bin tax that is happening all across Dublin, and in other counties." "The attempt to impose this double tax has proved universally unpopular with up to 70% of people refusing to pay. The politicians know that they are losing the battle, they know that they will never be able to take everyone to court to force them to pay. That is why they are introducing this law.." the leaflets continue.
Campaign Against Refuse Charges PRO, Gregor Kerr said that the Council would face "one hell of a fight" if they attempted to implement this new law. "The Campaign is organising all across the County, and we are linking up with anti-bin tax campaigns in the other Dublin counties, to plan a campaign which will see this legislation defeated, he said. "If and when the Councils seek to implement this new law, they will be met with strong, peaceful, firm people power. In our communities, the campaigns will organise direct action peaceful protests which will force the Councils to collect everyone's rubbish."
