Anger against tax dodging is alive and well across the UK, and people are keen to turn their anger into understanding and local action. Will you join us?
We've organised events across the UK to campaign against tax dodging and it's going even better than we'd hoped!
Each event we’re organising is a little bit different, but the idea is to discuss the problem of tax dodging and it’s impacts in the UK and the world’s poorest countries, then to explore solutions. We provide free tea and biscuits, and give you the chance to meet like-minded locals and consider what actions you can take as a community.
Campaigners at the Bristol Against Tax Dodging eventOur first event in Haringey in London earlier this week saw 25 people of all ages come together to learn about tax dodging. But they were most passionate about channelling their anger into solutions – Local Organiser Sophie Wills-Virk is already planning to return to lobby her council to pass a motion in support of Towns Against Tax Dodging with local support. Our Bristol event yesterday drew a similar crowd and sparked discussion about plans to campaign in the city.
Thanks to everyone who has attended an event so far!

Local organisers are the key to our success
Back in the summer, we recruited local organisers from across the UK. Our organisers are passionate volunteers who are leading the Towns Against Tax Dodging campaign in their communities, helping us by booking, planning and promoting these local events. We couldn’t have done it without them! Thanks Sophie, James, Jeanette, Adrian, Will, Harpreet, Jo, Kamaljit and Damon for all your hard work.
If there’s nothing happening near you but you’d like to help us organise an event please get in touch – we’d love to spread our reach wider, but we need your help!
