Cuts watch

A new anti-cuts direct action network has sprung up targeting Vodafone as the unacceptable face of corporate tax avoidance.

A Private Eye investigation uncovered a deal whereby the tax authorities agreed to allow Vodafone to use a loophole to avoid paying £6bn in taxes.

Protesters closed at least 21 Vodafone stores in cities across the country on 30 October. The national UKuncut day of action was organised extremely quickly through social networks on the internet.

The next day of action is 4 December. A fast-growing network, UKuncut is becoming a hub for grassroots anti-cuts action: www.ukuncut.org.uk
