Make a short film (60 — 90 seconds long) that shows what you think of the idea of governments taxing the banks to raise money for the poor and the planet. Get it judged by top film and advertising talent – such as Richard Curtis and Sienna Miller – and win some great prizes.
The Robin Hood Tax is a tiny tax on banks that would give billions to tackle poverty and climate change, here and abroad. The public have bailed out the banks to the tune of £20 trillion in total. In the UK alone the bailout cost £31,250 per person. Isn’t it now time society was paid back?
The message to governments is clear: “When you tax the banks, don’t just help yourself to the money, make sure the money goes to helping the poor and the planet.”
