The global economic crisis has pushed 50 million more people worldwide into extreme poverty. It’s simply not fair for poor people to pay the price of mistakes made by rich bankers, to die for lack of medicines or for their children to be forced out of school because of an economic crisis they did nothing to cause. That’s why Oxfam is campaigning for a financial transaction tax on banks.

The ‘Robin Hood Tax’ is a tiny tax that would have a massive impact. It would raise enough money to help poor people, protect public services and tackle climate change at home and abroad.

Oxfam, along with many partners, is working to make this tax happen. Politicians around the world are already beginning to consider it as a serious possibility, but we need to make sure the possibility becomes a reality.
