Occupy London Demands End of Tax Havens

The Guardian reports today that Occupy LSX activists have issued the first of their policy demands, and tackling tax havens and tax avoidance come top of the list:

"Globally, corporations deprive the public purse of hundreds of billions of pounds each year, leaving insufficient funds to provide people with fair living standards. We must abolish tax havens and complex tax avoidance schemes, and ensure corporations pay tax that accurately reflects their real profits."

We're thrilled to have played some part in shaping the agenda, and for those who didn't see our earlier posting, make a note of what's become essential reading for every activist around town (any town, any country)
