New Report: Tax Us If You Can – The Africa Edition

February 18th, 2011


Last week at the World Social Forum in Dakar, Senegal, the African branch of Task Force coordinating committee member Tax Justice Network, Tax Justice Network – Africa (TJN-Africa), released the African edition of Tax Us If You Can.

As Dereje Alemayehu, chair of Tax Justice Network’s African Steering Committee, put it in a blog last week from Dakar:

This report is a clarion call to civil society and governments across Africa to stand up against the injustice of those who dodge taxes, and the response from those attending the launch was clear: this is an injustice we can no longer tolerate.

Or you can read more about the report and the tax justice movement in Africa in Dereje’s blog post.
