Over the last few months, network members have been busy preparing our first newsletter. We cover the launch of the network from Nairobi and report back from campaigns in the UK, the US, and across Africa with the Tax Justice Network for Africa (TJNA).
We also have a special focus topic -- multinational abuses and the need for a Country-by-Country reporting standard. Editorials from members shine the spotlight on the dirty deeds of Firestone Tire and Rubber Company -- and explain how the international financial system is supporting tax dodging and other practices that are causing, prolonging, and deepening poverty, suffering, and violence for billions of people around the world. The problems go beyond just occasional acts of corporate malpractice – it is time to face up to the systemic abuse.
Finally, you’ll also read about why tax justice is important – from preventing “economic tourism” in Malawi to the need for financing for development in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
