Robin Hood Tax: Tights Camera Action

Published 08th June 2010 - 2 comments - 2593 views -

Latest post about robbing the rich - a video from Robin Hood Tax Australia:

Didn't see Russell Crowe or Cate Blanchett in the video. I'm sure Cate would be sympathetic, not sure about Russell.

Meanwhile there is a global film competition Tights Camera Action to promote the tax:

Make a short film (60 – 90 seconds long) that shows us what you think of the idea of governments taxing the banks to raise money for the poor and the planet.

You can do your bit to help the banks help the developing world. Visit THEROBINHOODTAX

    Not to mention his merry men. One of them is Luke Fletcher of Jubilee Australia who are leaders in promoting the tax.

    Hard to be an optimist in Australia. The govt are taking a battering over a proposed Resources Super Profits Tax. The miners are taking no prisoners in their ruthless campaign to defeat the tax and Kevin Rudd. Opposition leader Tony Abbott is Prince John’s understudy in this farce.

    More about Luke and mining in a later post.
