PETITION: Don’t tax disabled, lower paid & unemployed

URGENT: Please sign this petition

Print out and return to “Don’t tax the unemployed” Campaign, c/o Bradford Resource Centre, 17-21 Chapel Street, Bradford, BD1 5DT (Please note: Only Bradford residents may sign). Email: donttaxunemployed@hotmail.co.uk.

The Con-Dem Government Coalition is cutting by ten per cent the amount Bradford Council receives in council tax support, amounting to £4.3 million.

Instead of campaigning against this attack on the living standards of the people, Bradford Labour is planning to pass on the burden to those least able to pay: the unemployed, the disabled, and families on low incomes.

Labour intends to force these disadvantaged voters to pay up to 25 per cent of the Council Tax, amounting to an average of £195 per household.

THIS MUST NOT HAPPEN!

Instead of taxing the unemployed and disabled, Labour must be forced to withdraw this proposal and instead campaign against the Con-Dem cuts strategy and instead demand jobs for all.

  1. Having obtained the necessary minimum signatures, we hope to present the petition to the full Council on Oct 16, 4pm. Please come and support us. But that’s just the beginning, and we will be campaigning right up to the May 2013 elections.
