Mike Leek – Social Response-ability
During our everyday lives we communicate with more people, more often, than ever before; however we seldom use these increased opportunities to talk about serious issues in society.
I have chosen to contact people in order to encourage discussion around the issue of the Robin Hood Tax. There is currently a campaign to introduce a tax of only 0.05% on financial transactions, which could raise billions in additional revenue in the UK alone.
The money could be used to help fight cuts to essential public services, tackle climate change, fund further cancer research, end poverty at home and abroad, and help kerb the kind of reckless financial sector behaivour that led to the global financial crisis.
