Robin Hood Tax Campaign

The British TUC and dozens of charities, faith groups and community organisations launched a campaign to "tax the rich and give to the poor" called the Robin Hood Tax. The campaign is calling on the leaders of the UK's political parties to support a global tax on the banks to help repair the human damage caused by the global economic crisis, protect public services at home, fight poverty abroad and help foot the bill for climate change.
