VAT’s way to target bosses

Issue No. 2238

Activists will take part in several protests this Saturday against corporate tax-dodging and the rise in VAT.

The campaign group UK Uncut says protests are planned in Barnstable, Norwich and Peterborough against tax dodging. Others have called a “Take VAT” day of protests, including in London.

Anti-corporate protests have already had an impact. One multinational executive quoted in the Financial Times this week said, “UK Uncut worries people like me. It shows how much raw anger there is out there.”
