This autumn, Christian Aid and Church Action on Poverty are joining forces to take the campaign for Tax Justice on the road, with a seven-week Tax Justice Bus Tour.
Their bright red London bus will be touring the length and breadth of Britain and Ireland, to promote the simple message: it’s time for Tax Justice for the poorest communities at home and globally.
In an age of austerity and spending cuts, tax avoidance is morally unacceptable: tax dodging costs lives. It effectively amounts to robbing the poor – in the UK and in poor countries – of the money that should be spent on education, health and welfare.
The Tax Justice Bus will be in Glasgow’s George Square on Tuesday 2 October with Story-telling events from 1.30pm.
That evening at 7.30pm there will be a Christian Aid Supporter & Community event in Renfield St Stephen’s Church, 260 Bath Street, Glasgow. The event will be chaired by Rev Peter Macdonald, Leader of the Iona Community; and the panel discussion will include Kathy Galloway, Head of Christian Aid, Scotland, Graham Spiers, sports journalist, and Gerry Hassan, writer, researcher, policy analyst, author of numerous books and publications on Scotland, the UK, policy and ideas. All welcome.
