CAERPHILLY Against the Bedroom Tax took to the streets of the town centre to campaign against the Tory-Lib Dem Bedroom Tax, and call for its repeal.
The Bedroom Tax threatens the most vulnerable people in Caerphilly County Borough, deducting benefits to council tenants for “spare rooms”.
Collecting signatures on a petition against the unfair Bedroom Tax were Cllr Ray Davies from Bedwas, Marie Walsh from Oakdale, and other volunteers.
The council will be considering a motion at next Tuesday’s meeting of Caerphilly County Borough Council.
Even though the campaign against the Bedroom Tax has won many important battles throughout Britain, the war will only be won when the discredited tax is consigned to the political dustbin.
