ACT NOW - SUPPORT ROBIN HOOD!
Petition to the leaders of all political parties in the UK:
We call on you to support a "Robin Hood tax", a tiny charge of 0.05% on international bankers’ speculation, ensuring the banks pay their fair share of the costs of recovery. We urge you to use the hundreds of billions raised to stop cuts in public services at home, and to invest in sustainable development and environmental protection everywhere.
