After playing a significant role on bringing about the global financial crash in 2008, numerous banks across Europe and the US were propped up with taxpayers money after finding themselves in desperate need of capital. It seems grossly unfair that private debt should become the burden of the taxpayer when banks are not obligated to share profit with the public.

A proposed “Robin Hood” tax, a tiny tax on all bank transactions, could raise hundreds of billions for social programmes and combating climate change . For more information on the campaign visit http://www.robinhoodtax.org.uk
