The Robin Hood Tax is a tiny tax on the financial sector which would raise up to £20 billion a year in the UK to help tackle poverty at home and abroad, and help poor countries adapt to climate change.
Latest campaign news:
Earlier this year we shared the exciting news that eleven European countries pledged to introduce a Financial Transaction Tax (FTT) which could raise £30 billion. This is great and exciting news - yet it is our Government who is disturbing this progress. George Osborne is making an unprecedented legal challenge to stop these eleven countries going ahead with the new tax. Although currently unclear where the money from the taxes would be spent by each of the national treasuries (we believe it should be to help poverty at home and abroad), it's inspired us to push for the Robin Hood Tax even more. Ask George Osborne to drop his challenge by taking action here with UNICEF UK and the Robin Hood Tax.
Support for this tax is overwhelming - world leaders, faith leaders, economists and Nobel prize winners all cheered the lead taken by European countries. Don't let George Osborne wreck this progress.
UNICEF UK is a member of the Robin Hood Tax coalition.
