Wakefield keeps campaigning for tax justice

12th Jul 2013


Tax justice campaigners regather after an intense few months of campaigning in Wakefield in  a few days- fancy joining them? 

Campaigners never stop- rain or shine, they are usually out there, meeting and talking with people to share their passion and bring change.

So, if you happen to be in Wakefield in less than a couple of weeks' time, you will have the chance to

meet some formidable campaigners who, since January, have been working tirelessly on the IF Campaign to fight hunger, tax avoidance and land grabs. One of them is Bishop of Pontefract Tony Robinson, who, back in January, was the first to write to Yorkshire MPs and MEPs about tax justice

On Wednesday 24th July, he will be leading the IF Campaign Café Evening on tax justice- and how climate change and hunger could be solved are also going to be discussed.

Bishop Robinson is enthusiastic about the event. He said: "I'm really keen to meet with people from Wakefield to talk with them about tax justice and how it could transform the lives of people in poverty, both in the UK and around the world".

IF Campaign Café starts on Wednesday 24th July at 7pm at Wakefield Cathedral. For more information, please contact:
