Nick Cohen has written an article about Vodafone’s history of tax-dodging today. Notice how Vodafone’s early claims that it was all an “urban legend” are slowly fading from view. Article here.
Elsewhere, Vodafone executives have admitted today that, rather than UK Uncut shutting down a “small number” of stores, as previously claimed, we in fact shut down almost ten per cent of their stores in October 30th, including several of the biggest ones.
Don’t forget – December 4th is our national day of action.
See you on the high streets!
For all press enquiries call
Activists in Sheffield are looking to organise a UKUncut group. We now have groups in over a dozen cities across the UK 🙂
If you’re interested in getting involved, or know someone who might be then e-mail us with the subject line “Sheffield Action” and we’ll put you in touch with each another. If you have contacts at Sheffield Uni or Sheffield Hallam that could be a real big help with this.
Big love, pass it on, see you on the high streets!
The Guardian has once again name checked us, and mentioned our “day of mass civil disobedience against tax avoidance” in three weeks. How very exciting.
We’ve been a bit quiet. But we’ve been plotting.
On Saturday December 4th there will be a day of national mass direct action against tax avoiders.
Watch this space. More details soon.
Today, whilst Vodafone stores were being shut down in Cambridge, Nottingham, Bristol, Glasgow, Brighton and London, three Vodafone execs from the Newbury HQ came down to London to pay a surprise visit to George Osborne at his luxury wallpaper firm in Chelsea.
It was never supposed to happen. We were meant to be taking a short break. But as this article from today’s Guardian reports, people across the country are conspiring to make sure Vodafone don’t get a break.
So we know this is last minute, and we apologise for that, but check the new action map and see if there’s a shut down planned near you. If not, then make it happen. All you need to do is get a few people together, print some flyers and pay a visit to your local store.
If you can’t do this Saturday, never fear. Something big is coming…
See you on the high streets!
