Tax dodging hurts the poor

Chrisitan Aid’s Tax Justice Tour has joined forces with UK poverty campaigners Church Action on Poverty and is on the road across Britain and Ireland to bring people together in a bid to end the injustice of tax dodging at home and abroad.

Days 30-31 sees the bus in the East Midlands, Saturday 22 September
Leicester and Nottingham and Sunday 23 September Calver, Buxton, Ashbourne.

The tax justice campaign has highlighted how developing countries lose $160bn every year – one-and-a-half-times what they receive in international aid. Thanks to loopholes in the global financial system, money that could provide vital services like schools and hospitals, is being pocketed by unscrupulous companies.
