    Robin Hood Tax gets a boost in New York

    Monday, September 27, 2010

    During the official summit in New York, the 140 heads of state and world leaders were looking at new ways to meet the millennium development goals following the realisation that progress in many of the world’s poorest countries is falling behind. 

    French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, gave a massive boost to the global Robin Hood Tax campaign, saying as next year’s chair of the G20 he would champion a Financial Transaction Tax. 

    In the lead up to the November G20 meeting in Korea, Jubilee Australia and the Australian Robin Hood Tax coalition will again be putting pressure on the Australian government to stop opposing the tax.
