We The People of Anguilla Say No to GST
THE PETITION OF THE PEOPLE OF ANGUILLA
WE THE PEOPLE
NOTE that there has been in the midst of the COVID Pandemic a series of increased taxation that have been levelled on the People of Anguilla including increased taxes at the Hospital, Electricity, Water, and the Ports all of which have negatively impacted the livelihoods of Anguillians especially since the Pandemic has left a significant percentage of the population unemployed, many of whom have not recovered since the destructive Hurricane Irma of 2017 and who have no immediate prospect of employment in our single driven tourism economy
SAY NO TO THE FIRST READING OF GST AND ITS IMPLEMENTATION AT THIS TIME!
WE CANNOT ACCEPT FURTHER TAXES SINCE WE ALREADY HAVE INCREASED HOSPITAL FEES, INCREASED WATER AND ELECTRICITY COSTS, INCREASED PORT FEES AND CUSTOMS DUTIES AND NO JOBS. THE GST TAX MUST NOT BE INTRODUCED DURING A PANDEMIC. IT WILL DESTROY US AS A PEOPLE AND OUR ECONOMY.
WE OPPOSE THE GST TAX AT THIS TIME!
PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION BELOW.
WE THE PEOPLE ASSERT THAT THE PASSING OF THE GST LEGISLATION WHEN THERE IS NO ECONOMY IS UNCONSCIONABLE AND UNCARING.
WE HERETO SET OUR SIGNATURES BELOW:
