From 24 August to 15 October, the Tax Justice Tour will take our campaign on the road to raise awareness of the impact tax dodging has on the poor, and to send a strong message to our government that it’s time for them to take action to end it.
We are running the tour in partnership with UK campaigners Church Action on Poverty who bring the perspective of the impact tax dodging has on people in the UK.
What's on the Tax Bus?
The Tax Justice Tour will see us take our red double-decker bus across every region of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
The bus will provide a space for you to learn more about tax dodging and its impact on those living in poverty.
There will be talks with local and national politicians, as well as church leaders and campaigners.
It will aso provide the chance to hear from people who have first-hand experience of the impact tax dodging.
And of course, it will provide the opportunity and tools for you to help tackle this gross injustice.
You can download a map and schedule here.
Tax dodging is an injustice
Tax dodging costs poor countries an estimated $160 billion a year.
This is one-and-a-half-times the international aid budget, and deprives poor communities of money that should be funding development - paying for schools, hospitals, infrastructure and other vital services.
Our 2009 report, False Profits, explains the maths, and the kind of damage this does to development - download it now (PDF).
Meanwhile, we are embarking on the Tax Justice Tour with our partners from Church Action on Poverty, who will provide the damage tax dodging does to people living in the UK.
