Recently the Guardian newspaper revealed that Barclays Bank paid just £113m in UK corporation tax in 2009 – a year when it rang up a record £11.6bn of profits.
It is unacceptable that big businesses and banks like Barclays do not pay their taxes at a time when Councils up and down the country are shedding thousands of jobs and closing vital services.
PROTEST AT BARCLAYS BANK
Thursday 3rd March 2011
12:00 Noon – 1:00 pm (approx)
Victoria Square, Bolton
(opposite the Town Hall)
According to the Bank of England, the British taxpayer has forked out an astonishing £1 trillion of public money to rescue the banks from collapse. And yet we are paying again for the banking crisis: this time with our jobs and public services.
Join us and tell Barclays that we won’t pay for their crisis.
