Protest at Council Tax Scheme that hits the poor: Monday Brent Civic Centre

The protest outside Willesden Magistrates Court when non-payers were summonsed by the Council
Brent Housing Action will be holding a protest at Brent Civic Centre before the  Brent Council meeting on Monday January 20th from 6.30pm.

They are protesting against the Council Tax Support Scheme proposals for 2014-15 that will be discussed at the meeting. The proposals only slightly modify the scheme that was in place for 2013-14 which led to the Council taking many residents, who had not previously paid Council Tax to court for non-payment.

A full account of the issue can be found on the Brent Housing Action website HERE and the Officer's Report, by Andy Donald, can be found HERE
