Tax Justice Network: "The Chairman of the City of London Corporation debates outside St Pauls"

Link to web site

"An extraordinary event took place outside St. Paul’s on Sunday evening outside St. Paul’s. The Reclaim the City campaign group had arranged for George Monbiot, John Christensen (Director of Tax Justice Network) and Father William Taylor (a former Councillor in the Corporation of London) to explain to the Occupation their concerns with the City of London Corporation. 

"Unexpectedly Stuart Fraser, the Chairman of the City of London Corporation, turned up to debate with us. 

"The Occupation welcomed Stuart Fraser, and applauded him for having the courage to ‘enter the Lion’s Den’, as one protestor put it. His first words to the occupation were: ‘I thought it was time the devil incarnate came to give his side'."

The Tax Justice Network (TJN) is an international, non-aligned coalition of researchers and activists with a shared concern about the harmful impacts of tax avoidance, tax competition, and tax havens.
