Tax dodgers feel the heat
Grimsby Socialist Party members supported UK Uncut protests against Vodafone on 14 June. The local store was forced to shut up shop that afternoon due to the protest's success. We wore tax-dodger Gary Barlow masks to make our point and highlighted Vodafone's tax dodging, estimated at around £6 billion.
Socialist Party member Roy Crampton, founder of Grimsby UK Uncut, said: "Too many corporate companies are allowed to get away with this. We've had enough. Collecting taxes from companies such as Vodafone would go a long way to paying for the cuts this Con-Dem government imposed on the poorest members of society."
