From next week the latest bitter austerity pill will be administered to our hard pressed low and middle income earners as letters arrive in every home from the Revenue Commissioners demanding the new property tax. Although having the Revenue logo, they will arrive by edict of the Troika, the economic dictators who are being allowed to walk with jackboots over the living standards of our people, courtesy of the connivance of gutless politicians who comprise the Fine Gael and Labour parties, and before them, Fianna Fail. And never forget, this is another tribute exacted to bail out the private gambling debts of the bankers and bondholders who wrecked this economy. read full story / add a comment

This is the first occupation of this type held by the campaign, and represents a significant escalation of our protest activity .

Press statement - Campaign Against Household & Water Taxes (CAHWT) 11 Feb 2013
Eyewitness reports of Garda violence at South Dublin County Council

19 year old protester hospitalised: plainclothes Garda ‘smashed my head on wall’

Campaigners against the property tax – who staged one of a number of peaceful protests at Councils today – have questioned why Gardai at South Dublin County Council used brutal and unnecessary force against them, including some plain clothes Gardai. Cannisters of pepper spray were also waved at locals who were manhandled and handcuffed. One is currently being kept in Tallaght Hospital for observation of his injuries. read full story / add a comment

The government has published The Water Services Bill 2013 that gives it power to impose a Water Tax from Jan 1st 2014. The Bill has yet to go through the Dail for possible minor amendments. The Bill will handle our public water resources and infrastructure over to a private company that will be able to extract what essentially amounts to a form of rent for providing a basic need like water. The tax will cost at least €500+ a year although naturally the government has played down this figure.

Initially the government will take the tax as revenue for themselves but eventually this gift will be handed over to private companies. read full story / add a comment

The Workers Solidarity Movement’s newspaper last week asked why the anarchist group’s fellow CAHWT campaigners in the United Left Alliance had held a press conference the week previously to announce plans for “a public campaign of resistance to property tax and austerity”. The WSM article calls the ULA decision “bizarre” . read full story / add a comment

outside the offices of Joe Costello TD and Paschal Donoghoe TD for
this Saturday (April 28th).

Monday 2nd April: Picket at City Hall, Dame Street, 6pm. The City Council will be discussing a motion opposing the household charge.

Keep up the momentum behind the campaign there are sections of the media who would love a poor turn-out to knock us after the successful march to the FG conference. So turn up and spread the word. read full story / add a comment

The tax protests back in the 70s and 80s proved futile when it came to ordinary working people being heard by their government. In reality the only thing that really happened on those occasions was that working people lost a day's pay. Mass demonstration in Ireland achieves nothing. It is seen as a way for working people and the unemployed to let off a bit of steam so that everything can move along as it was. The trade union movement has not seen or has deliberately avoided other forms of demonstration beyond mass demonstration. The time for change has come, mass demonstration is no longer a proven method of having the will of the people upheld by their political representatives. ts time for change. read full story / add a comment

What sort of a nation of people do we have when nearly 500,000 householders decide to pay a charge that is directly aimed at the most vulnerable and stressed incomes in our society. read full story / add a comment

Protest at the Fine Gael Ard Fheis, assemble 1pm, Saturday 31 March at Parnell Square. March to National Convention Centre, IFSC..

As the March 31 deadline approaches it is clear that huge numbers are refusing to pay. Mass non-payment of the household tax will not just be a massive blow to an unjust tax it will also be a massive blow to the Government’s entire austerity drive. read full story / add a comment

With less than a week to go before more than one million people will be hauled into court for breaking the law the Household Charge protest hs taken one more step closer to success. The only people who believe this tax is justifable are the same people who can well afford to pay this tax. While this government squeezes more and more out of the people politicians like Enda Kenny and Eamon Gilmore give themselves pay rises to compensate them for losses they incured through their so-called ''we are all in this together' cry of unity. Should one million people refuse to pay the cahrge before the deadline of the 31st Match, then this must be seen a s a sign of no confidence in this government and Irish politicians in general.

Ballyphehane & South Parish Campaign Against the Household and Water Tax (CAHWT) Picket Ciaran Lynch's Clinic

Members of the Ballyphehane and South Parish, Campaign Against the Household and Water Tax (CAHWT) picketted Ciaran Lynch's Bandon Road clinic, on Friday the 23rd of March at 6pm.

The Ballyphehane and South Parish CAHWT local groups expressed their outrage at being berated in the media by the government TD for their democratic preference in boycotting this unjust and regressive form of taxation. This unfair taxation is being imposed on ordinary people by the government in order to pay for the bank bailouts and the costs of the developers, bankers and big business. read full story / add a comment

There will be a demonstration against the household charges in the centre of Tralee on Saturday March 24th, to coincide with the national rally of the campaign in Dublin.

With only a week to go before the registration deadline 80% of those liable for the tax have not registered, and the boycott slogan of “Don’t Register, Don’t Pay” has been enthusiastically received.
