Christian Aid is launching a new stage in its campaign against tax dodging. Starting at the Greenbelt Festival in Cheltenham in August, a 53-day tour of Britain and Ireland in a double-decker bus will give people nationwide the opportunity of hearing from Christian Aid partners in the global south about how tax dodging affects their lives.
The Tax Bus is due in Wolverhampton on Thursday 30 August and will be at Molineux car park, Molineux Way for about two hours from 9.30am. For the first half-hour MPs and Clergy will be the audience. Then it’s the turn of Christian Aid supporters. A partner from Guatemala will be present to explain first-hand how tax dodging affects the poor. Photographs will be taken and a petition will be organised to get the Prime Minister to take action on tax dodging. More information on the campaign can be found by visiting christianaid.org.uk/taxbus.
