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. Last month George Osborne launched an unprecedented legal challenge to stop these eleven countries going ahead with the new tax. Although currently unclear where that money 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 him to drop his challenge by taking action here.
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.
