Organising against the household tax - You have a role to play

Workers Solidarity Movement members are currently centrally involved in helping to establish a campaign against the new household tax announced by the government.  For this campaign to be successful it will have to be built at a local level in every area of Dublin and in every town and city around the country. The central plank of the campaign will be non-payment and it will be based on the successful anti-water charges campaign of the 1990s.


A co-ordinating group for the campaign currently exists which consists of representatives of most of the left-wing political parties/organisations.  The plan is that as local campaigns are established this co-ordinating group will be replaced by a structure representative of the local campaign groups.

A national meeting in the form of a workshop/forum aimed at arming activists with the political arguments for a non -payment campaign and discussing the practicalities of organising the campaign in local communities will be held on Saturday 10th September at 1:30p.m. in the Teachers Club, 36 Parnell Square, Dublin 1.  This meeting is open to anyone who wants to get involved in helping to build the campaign.
