Paying Tax is never popular but Tax dodging costs developing countries an estimated $160bn every year – one and a half times what they receive in international aid!
Christian Aid are taking the message of tax justice on the road around Britain and Ireland in a double-decker bus, meeting supporters and hosting briefings about the ‘Trace the tax’ campaign. There will be a chance to explore the issue which in essence is caused by loopholes in the global financial system and the unscrupulous companies who seek to exploit them.
The bus will be at Dumfries Northwest Church of Scotland church, Lochside Road, DG2 0DZ on Monday 1st October  between 1 and 3pm.
 As well as boarding the bus and seeing the exhibition, there will be a briefing on the tax campaign by Mariano Paolo, an expert from Christian Aid, at 1pm. There will also be the chance to hear from Lidy Nacpill from the Philippines and Church Action on Poverty about the effects of tax dodging at home and abroad. Refreshments will be provided with tea and coffee available from 12:30pm.
Please pass on the details of this important event to others who might be interested. All are welcome.
