Seven weeks, 50 towns and cities across Britain and Ireland, one goal: Tax justice for the poorest communities locally and globally
From Church Action on Poverty:
This autumn, Christian Aid and Church Action on Poverty are joining forces to take the campaign for Tax Justice on the road, with a seven-week Tax Justice Bus Tour.
Our bright red London bus will be touring the length and breadth of Britain and Ireland, to promote the simple message: It’s time for Tax Justice for the poorest communities at home and globally. In an age of austerity and spending cuts, tax avoidance is morally unacceptable: tax dodging costs lives. It effectively amounts to robbing the poor – in the UK and in poor countries – of the money that should be spent on education, health and welfare.
The Bus Tour is a great opportunity to build support for Tax Justice via the local and regional media, with local and national politicians, church leaders, campaigners and supporters in the churches and other sympathetic audiences (eg trade unions).
