VODAFONE STORE SHUT DOWN THIS AFTERNOON
Protests still due in Brighton, Oxford, Manchester, Weymouth, Portsmouth and Bristol - plenty time to get down to some of these if you're loca.

Rain, shine and cold - well done to everyone who took part in this action :-) Closing three Vodafone shops on a busy shopping Saturday on Oxford Street in the run up to Christmas will no doubt help them to keep their tax bills down next year too, let alone the protests in other parts of the country :-)
To people who are confused about the difference between corporate taxes and income tax, please note there is a huge difference and corporations are "legal" and not "natural" persons like you and I in any case. Loss of money and reputation, as today, is where it really hurts them. They won't be losing their housing or child benefits... and Vodafone aren't the only ones getting away with not paying their taxes. Is this just the tip of the iceberg?
Just a note to the organisers - in future, it might be nice to have a small flyer to hand out to the public - they might read it later and might not be aware ... but a great action anyway. Thanks.
In solidarity, A+
