    Default State supported bank collecting money for the Campaign against the Household Charge

    Bank of Ireland's James Street Branch are operating an account that facilitates donations to the
    Campaign Against Household & Water Taxes


    The organisation campaigns encouraging people to break the law and not to pay taxes. Their action would be legitimate if they simply sought to repeal the laws on household taxes.


    Why does the Minister not seize the bank account? It is amazing that a Bank kept afloat by the taxpayer and the State should be a party to an effort to prevent the collection of lawful taxes.




    Offences Against the State Act, 1939


    "Donate to support the Campaign


    The Campaign Against Household & Water Taxes is a not for profit, community-based campaign which relies on ordinary people like you for funding. The production of posters, leaflets and the running of our campaign hotline, and the building of our legal advice fund for non-payers, all cost money, and we get no bail out or brown envelopes. So please consider giving us a donation via our bank account (please put “Individual Donation” as the narrative on the lodgement):

    Bank: Bank of Ireland, Account name: Campaign Against Household and Water Taxes, Account number: 93336469, Branch Sort Code: 90-08-77 , that is 85 James’s St, Dublin 8"

    Because that would be the actions of a totalitarian state. The government at least has to create the illusion that we are living in a democracy

    Over 70% of the people have paid. The Government is democratically elected. 70% of the households have endorsed the tax.

    Why is a bank assisting criminals to promote the breaking of our law?

    Do you want to live in a country where it's illegal for people to fund raise and campaign against laws they don't agree with? Stupid doesn't even begin to describe it. Clown.

    I think the country needs a sustainable property tax, but I would be 100% opposed to taking this money from them or preventing them from being able to effectively fundraise.

    It is legal to raise funds to repal a law.

    It is not legal to encourage others not to comply with the law. That makes he organisation illegal.
