The Avaaz community is honoured to stand by your side. We join your call to EU leaders to support a financial transaction tax for health, climate and jobs to secure our future. On Wednesday 11th, we will be fasting for 24 hours in solidarity with you. For our youth, our planet and everything we love.
I pledge to fast for 24 hours on Wednesday 11th:
The leading budget negotiator is on hunger strike to protest against the EU’s refusal to tax rich corporations to fund climate action.
He has been a long-term ally of our community, and his heroic stance has deeply inspired our team to strike in solidarity with him for 24h on Wednesday.
If you feel like joining our effort for a tax on speculation to protect our planet, sign the pledge and Pierre will carry our voices into the negotiations at the European Parliament!-- thousands of Avaaz members have already joined: the more we are, the stronger his stance.
