More anti-tax avoidance action planned

Courtesy of UK Uncut, we bring the details of further anti-tax avoidance action this Saturday. Also, tomorrow, the day of the tuition fee votes, students have vowed to shut down London.  Here is a handy map with some places protesters might want to visit on their day out. As UK Uncut reminds us, “the tax Philip Green has dodged could have paid fees for 32,000 students and the tax that the government just let Vodafone off paying could fund the whole of higher education.”

On Saturday’s action, UK Uncut says:

Over the past few months, protesters have staged sit ins, performance interventions, pickets, flash mobs, superglue stick-ons and intrepid one-woman protests against tax dodgers across the country.

Saturday December 18th is Pay Day, our next day of mass action. One week before Christmas, thousands of people across the country will be hitting the high streets to make sure tax dodgers pay.

Once again we will be targeting the multi-national and the multi-billionaire, Vodafone and Sir Philip Green. Both have been shaken up by the protests so far, but on December 18th they will face protests on a scale they could not have imagined just a few months ago. Vodafone and Arcadia will be targeted on every major high street in the UK. It’s up to you to make it happen.

Tell all your friends, family and colleagues. Come up with creative protest ideas. Start planning. Use our action centre to organise or join an action near you.

If you’re angry that the government is cutting services for the poorest and most vulnerable whilst letting the rich avoid billions in tax, then please join us, even if you have never been on a protest before.

The government is determined to plough ahead with these savage, unnecessary, ideological cuts. But a growing protest movement is starting to stage the fight back. Be a part of it.

See you on high streets.”
