Background from the ANTI-AUSTERITY ACTION campaign:
DON’T PAY COUNCIL TAX, SUPPORT COUNCIL TAX PROTESTOR!
Thousands of people in Nottingham are not paying the Council Tax because they can’t afford it. The policies of the Coalition Government are forcing millions of people into poverty. The cuts in vital local services imposed by Labour-controlled Nottingham City Council are making worse the problems faced by people on low incomes.
CAN’T PAY, WON’T PAY!
* Falling incomes, rising prices
* Bedroom Tax, Council Tax Benefit cuts, welfare benefit cuts
* Rising Council Tax, cuts in local services
It was rich bankers who created this economic mess but ordinary people are being forced to pay.
Now is the time for us to hit back at the politicians who serve the rich.
