Why do billionaires pay nothing?

28 March 2020

Luxembourg

Most of us pay tax. Even if we don’t have much. Some of it goes to the State for our schools, our roads, our hospitals and our environment.

Each year we need 1115 billion euros to pay for the green transition. And each year we lose 1000 billion euros because of tax evasion and tax avoidance. We will not allow our future to be robbed so that a few billionaires can fill their pockets. It’s time for justice!

The Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25) calls on all progressives and democrats to unite in the struggle to secure our future from the rich, the selfish and the powerful.

The launch of this fight will be in the capital of Tax Avoidance in Europe: Luxembourg City, Place du Glacis, March 28, 2020 at 14:00.

On March 28, we urge people, movements, organisations, parties and unions from across Europe to join us in claiming our right to a just, sustainable, democratic world.

The fight for justice for our communities and justice for the planet has a common opponent: selfishness. Let’s unite to defeat it. Learn more
