Petition: Don't make Hackney's poorest pay for cuts

We the undersigned call on Hackney Council to scrap its plans to raise the council tax paid by the poorest people in Hackney by up to 80%. This will plunge thousands of individuals and families into poverty and debt. We call on the Council to exempt the poorest people from Council Tax as Camden Council has done.
