Catch Nick Shaxson in the City of London on Saturday Nov 19

Reposted from the Treasure Islands blog, and with updates added:

Nick writes:

I will be giving a talk about tax havens on the steps of St Pauls on Saturday, at 4.30 p.m., alongside Anthea Lawson of Global Witness and Montfort Tadier, who will be talking about what it’s like to be a politician in the tax haven of Jersey. I understand that Vivienne Westwood will also be involved. Come along to listen, to question, or to heckle.

I note this, from The Guardian, though:

The Corporation of London has told the protesters outside St Paul’s Cathedral they have until 6pm today to pack up their tents or they will be taken to the high court.

The Occupy protesters will be contesting this, so I hope and expect that my event will go ahead as scheduled.

Updates:

As at the time of posting this blog, the Occupy protesters are still at St. Paul's. You can keep track of developments on the Occupy London site here.

After the 4:30pm talk at St. Paul's, Nick will talk at Finsbury Circus at 6:30pm
