This campaign aims to mobilise people from around the world to highlight tax evasion by both multinational corporations and wealthy individuals – the injustices, costs and solutions related to it. We want to pressure our governments to end tax evasion by changing the structures and rules that make it possible!
It is coordinated by the International Union of Socialist Youth (IUSY) and Young European Socialists (YES), with the partnership of our member organisations, activists and political organisations from around the world. It aims to show that there is a real international desire for change, and real solutions possible, when it comes to tax justice.
It is often said by people who dismiss action on tax evasion that it can only be solved on an international level. But this should not be an excuse for not acting. By mobilising people in countries throughout the world under a common call to action, we can show that this is an issue in which individual countries do not need to be isolated, that there is a demand for change wherever the change needs to happen.
Secondly, this campaign puts forward a solutions-based agenda and discourse on this topic, raising awareness on the clear solutions that are available to deal with tax evasion, and the potential benefits that could arise from the implementation of these solutions. This is to counteract the impression that while tax evasion and tax avoidance are bad, there is nothing we can do about it. We will make clear that realities can change, as long as there is the willingness and pressure to do so.
By ending tax evasion, we can show that multinational corporations and ultra-wealthy individuals can be held to account. We can help fund public services, fight international crime and ensure global tax justice.
