Following a series of 4 public meetings across the area (attended by a total of about 100 people), the following activity is planned by the Dun Laoghaire Campaign Against Household And Water Taxes in the next couple of weeks:

1. Sat. 18th February – 12noon – 2pm: Information Stalls at Bloomfield Shopping Centre, Stillorgan Shopping Centre and Killiney Shopping Centre, Rochestown Avenue.
These stalls will be used to engage with the public and encourage non-registration and non-payment. The Campaign’s leaflet issued in response to the government leaflet will be distributed as will the Campaign newsletter. Window posters, car stickers and membership cards will all be available at each of the stalls.
It is planned that from the stalls the distribution of the new campaign leaflet to every house in the Dun Laoghaire area will be organised.

2. Sat. 25th February – 2:00p.m. A public protest and ‘speak out’ against the household tax will be held at the Church Wall in the centre of Dun Laoghaire. This will be another opportunity for campaign activists to engage with the public, deal with any worries/queries that people might have, encourage and support non-registration and recruit new activists to the Campaign.

3. Tues. 28th February – 7:30pm Public Meeting ‘Boycott Household Tax. Boycott Registration’ in Kingston Hotel, Dun Laoghaire. Speakers – Richard Boyd Barrett TD and John Halligan TD. It is planned that from this meeting, and from the public meetings already held, the campaign in Dun Laoghaire will have established a base of activists in all parts of the area and will hold regular activists’ meetings to plan the future direction of the campaign in the area.
