In a protest against tax haven locations a crowd of about 150 protesters demonstrated outside the Stock Exchange in central London.

They wanted to expose the City of London for being as they describe it “The Tax Haven of the World”.  It was spearheaded by a new movement known as The Rules, that sprung up after the Occupy tents protests ended.

The demonstration was meant to be in the form of a ‘tropical tax haven’ with music and entertainment – but there were no Palm trees or sand just the stark streets of the city of London.  But despite this the organisers said their demonstration was successful and the message was heard.

It was a peaceful protest and it broke up after they completed reading out their demands for action to be taken by the government against people using tax havens so that they didn’t have to pay the inland revenue.

The protest group known as The Rules, said they would continue their demonstrations if the government doesn’t consider policies to prevent money leaving the country so that tax does not need to be paid.  It is not certain the new movement will have any impact with officials and whether they would survive as a activist group
