The campaign for a Robin Hood Tax continues to grow. If you haven’t been following along on robinhoodtax.org.uk, then you may have missed that 350 Economists have called for a Financial Transaction Tax. There are also lots of ideas there for fun local actions you may want to take.
It’s also heartening to see that Robin Hood is not just being backed by those of us who work in International Development: organisations such as NCVO have also joined the coalition, and are calling for even more to join too.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, it would be great to sign and publicise Avaaz’s petition for the Robin Hood Tax. Once it hits 100,000 names, it’s off to the UK Party leaders – so get to sharing the link! http://www.avaaz.org/en/robin_hood/
