Anti-poverty campaigners will be protesting Alliance Boots’ tax avoidance and its risk to public health and the NHS on 11th June at 10am outside the Boots flagship store on Oxford Street.
Full address: Sedley Place, 361 Oxford Street, London W1C 2JL.
The action comes on the heels of a recent letter to HMRC and the Treasury by a coalition of activists (Unite, War on Want, Medact, Tax Justice Network, Tax Research UK and Change to Win) to investigate the company’s use of limited liability partnerships and tax havens.
We are an independent international network launched in 2003. We conduct high-level research, analysis and advocacy on international tax; on the international aspects of financial regulation; on the role of tax in society; and on the impacts of tax evasion, tax avoidance, tax 'competition' and tax havens. We seek to create understanding and debate, and to promote reform, especially in poorer countries. We are not aligned to any political party.
