Close tax havens/Tobin petition
Ok here's one last try at getting numbers up on my tax and CAP justice petition, which expires on the 12th November. I'll transfer details to another webspace before it expires, but in the meantime pls put your name to it if you haven't already, and thanks to everyone who's alread signed it. http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/tobintaxnow/
For those that haven't read it in detail, petition is about (1) closing down tax havens (2) bringing in a global currency transaction tax (CTT, aka Tobin) to fund public goods at the grassroots level worldwide and (3) reform of the Common Agricuktural Policy (CAP) to (a) protect small co-operative endeavours and real democracy (b) end state-capitalist protectionism and (c) level the global economic playing field so that the global south can compete as per the doctrine of international comparative advantage.
So, here again, in case you missed it is link to petition http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/tobintaxnow/
