Me in Green Left Weekly on tackling tax avoidance at the G20

I have an article on tax avoidance and the G20 in Green Left Weekly.

Here is how I finish it up:

The best way to address the shift in wealth from labour to capital is not through the tax system but through fighting for big real wage increases. Our task should be to help build all those economic and political battles to strengthen our class in its fight for equity and justice, including tax justice and tax equity.

The protests against the G20 in Brisbane should be one focus. Tax the rich is a slogan we can take to those protests. Real tax change won’t come from the politicians of the 1%, it has to come from us mobilising along with the mass of people for such change as part of a wider campaign for equity and justice economically and politically.

Fighting for tax justice can be and has to be part of that wider national and international struggle.

To read the whole article hit this link. Tackling tax avoidance at the G20.

Assistant tax commissioner? Wouldn’t that put you in the category of ‘rich’? Maybe it’s time for you to come clean on your personal financial position.
