Call to action - support the tax justice pledge
#taxjustice #europeanelections #developmentfinance #aid
Civil society organisations from across Europe have launched a tax justice pledge in the lead up to the European election, which take place across EU Member States from 23 – 26 May 2019. The tax justice pledge calls on election candidates to commit to supporting five policy priorities, should they be elected as Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). The pledge website enables citizens to contact their national candidates and more than 400 candidates from 26 EU countries have already signed the pledge.
Other pledges ahead of the EU elections worth your attention:
- Citizens for Financial Justice: #EP2019: Will you stand up for financial justice?
- ONE: Ask EU candidates to help end extreme poverty.
- Change Finance: Demand a financial system that serves people and planet.

Around the world today, more than 260 million children are not getting an education. In a world so rich, this is a scandal. Yet despite the UK signing up to international plans to change this, our government is increasingly failing to put pupils before profit. This video talks to campaigners from Kenya, Uganda, Education International and the National Education Union about the global movement to put #PupilsBeforeProfit.
