Break open the bubbly: Champagne Ardennes wants to go tax haven-free

Champagne Ardennes is the latest French region to want to go tax haven-free. Where Ile-de-France led the way, others are now rushing to follow.

While we accept that this is largely a symbolic action, this blogger recalls that many of the actions taken against Apartheid South Africa were also largely symbolic, but had the effect of shifting public opinion against that obnoxious system. And that is exactly what we hope to achieve with our campaign against tax havens, which are largely a manifestation of a new form of imperialism and every bit as obnoxious and harmful as racism.

Vive le RĂ©gion Champagne Ardennes.
