In a protest against tax haven locations a crowd of 150 protesters demonstrated outside the Stock Exchange in central London.
The group wanted to expose the City of London for being as they describe it “The Tax Haven of the World”. Spearheaded by a new movement known as The Rules. Group 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 no Palm trees or sand just the stark streets of the city of London. However despite this the organisers considered the demonstration successful and the message heard.
A peaceful protest and it broke up after crowd completed reading out their demands. This for action to be taken by the government against people using tax havens. So that they didn’t need to pay the inland revenue.
The protest group known as The Rules, said it would continue demonstrations. It wanted the government to consider policies to prevent money leaving the country. Also that tax needs to be paid. Not certain the new movement will have any impact with officials and whether the activist group would survive. Worth a try though.
