Registration panic shows household tax boycott still going strong

The media campaign by the Local Government Management Agency (LGMA) responsible for collecting the household tax reflects the real government concern now about the level of boycott of the charge.
“The LGMA were unwilling or unable to give the registration figures for the weekend but at least 1.5 million have still not registered. This can give strength to those weighing up the issue to now consciously join with or maintain their boycott of the tax”, said Gregor Kerr of the Campaign Against Household & Water Taxes (CAHWT).
“The call by Fianna Fail for an extension of the deadline for registration of the Household Tax and for more exemptions is political opportunism since they are the architects of the tax, having  signed off on it with the IMF/EU. This call reflects a panic by the establishment over the massive boycott of the tax,” said Gregor Kerr.
“CAHWT reiterates that if we stay united, no trawl for data, no courts or government can impose a tax which is not backed by between half to 80 per cent of the population. They cannot  take fines from people and neither does an ESB bill prove you are a homeowner. One million people cannot be hauled through the courts. Any member of the public is welcome to attend the National Protest Rally of  the Campaign in the National Stadium, Dublin, next Saturday, March 24th at 1pm.”
