Tax dodging allows wealthy elites and multinational firms to glean the benefits of society, while passing the bill to ordinary citizens: middle classes who pay higher tax bills; the poor who suffer from cuts to basic services.
We need more people to be outraged at what is happening and be motivated to do something about it.
'Money on an Island' is an upbeat, witty hip hop track, by Northern Irish duo, The Apopalyptics. It explains the harm tax havens do to society.
We are looking for support to make a video for the song, taking the message to a new audience. We will work with UK Uncut, Tipping Point Film Fund and major UK NGOs to push the film out on Twitter as soon as the next UK tax scandal erupts. Which won't be a long time coming....We need your support now.
What We Need & What You Get
We're raising funds to produce the video. We want it to look professional so we can get it on TV, but we are doing it on a shoestring budget.
Any excess funds raised will be directed towards promotion of the video, remunerating those on the cast and crew who volunteered time, and ongoing campaigns promoting financial transparency and reform. In the event of a shortfall, the budget will be amended.
Other Ways You Can Help
We can't all chip in all the time, but if you share our anger at $21 Trillion sitting in hidden offshore accounts while the rest of the world struggles to survive, get the word out! If you sign up for email alerts we'll contact you ahead of the launch to be an ambassador for the campaign by pushing it out to your contacts via Twitter and Facebook.
