Council Tax demonstration at Brent Civic Centre tomorrow
Brent Fightback is supporting Brent Housing Action's demonstration against Brent Council renewing (with a few minor tweaks) the present Council Tax Support scheme which saw many poor Brent residents summonsed for non-payment.
The demonstration will run from 6.30pm Monday 20th January 2014 at Brent Civic Centre. The full Council Meeting which will make the decision on the scheme starts at 7pm. The meeting is open to the public and will be livestreamed over the internet. LINK
The BHA have been denied the opportunity to speak to the full Council meeting, although Cllr James Denselow, Labour's communications chief, has said he will take this up. With livestreaming local residents will be able to view local residents being denied the opportunity to speak!
The BHA is seeking a councillor/s to move an amendment protecting the least well off.
