Tax Justice Bus will visit Cathedral
5 September 2012
THE TAX JUSTICE BUS will visit Guildford Cathedral on Thursday 13 September.
For seven weeks this Autumn, the Tax Justice Bus, part of a Christian Aid campaign to raise awareness of the impact tax dodging has on the poor will be travelling across the country, aiming to send a strong message to the government that it’s time for action on tax dodgers.
Tax dodging costs poor countries an estimated $160 billion a year. This is one-and-a-half-times the international aid budget, and deprives poor communities of money that should be funding development - paying for schools, hospitals, infrastructure and other vital services.
Learn about the injustice
Run in partnership with UK campaigners Church Action on Poverty, the bus will provide a space for people to learn more about tax dodging and its impact on those living in poverty.
There will be talks with local and national politicians, as well as church leaders and campaigners.
It will also provide the chance to hear from people who have first-hand experience of the impact of tax dodging.
