Zambia Sugar – Associated British Foods Must Stop Tax Dodging in Zambia – ZDDN
ActionAid researchers found evidence that Associated British Foods has used a range of loopholes to avoid paying taxes, shifting profits into tax havens and getting huge tax breaks. Associated British Foods are not breaking any laws and they are not unique. Tax avoidance tactics like this are standard practice.
Zambia Diaspora Development Network (ZDDN) strongly believes that this is scandalous. Industrial scale tax avoidance must end. Tax avoidance is not just victimless financial engineering. It is a travesty of justice to dodge tax in a country where 45% of the children are malnourished and two thirds of the population live on less than $2 a day. We must all act now to stop this injustice.
Please join campaigners in the UK and Zambia today and demand Associated British Foods pays its fair share. Take action at http://www.actionaid.org.uk/102017/tax_justice_campaign.html
