G20: it's time to get serious about tax havens

By Matthew Cunningham | 27 October 2011

You get the impression that tax dodging is all a bit of a fun for some unscrupulous companies.

But it’s no laughing matter for the millions of people in poor countries who have to go without decent education, health and other vital services as a result of the billions it costs their governments every year.

We've put this snappy video together as a message to the G20, who convene in Cannes on 3-4 November (that's next week!), to get serious and get tough on tax haven secrecy.

There are just days to go till the meetings start – and we need to make sure ending tax haven secrecy stays on the agenda.

1. Act now
