MEMBERS of the Campaign Against Home and Water Taxes are currently protesting at the Revenue offices in Kilkenny.

The protest is part of a series of co-ordinated protests which are taking place around the country.

The pickets were held as part of the build-up to the National Protest Against Property Tax Robbery which will be held in Dublin on Saturday next.

At the protest at the Kilkenny offices, Carlow CAHWT spokesperson Ned Costigan said: “We are protesting here today against the government’s use of Revenue as a battering ram, to force through an unjust tax on peoples’ homes and its attempt to use Revenue to intimidate people. We call on people to build a movement for change and to resist this intimidation.”
