Citizens in all countries are affected by tax havens and tax evasion and it impacts on human rights, says Canadian tax justice activist Dennis Howlett. He and a number of other individuals and organisations will be attending the International Tax Justice and Human Rights Symposium this week (June 18-20) at Montreal’s McGill University.
Bringing together researchers, academics, and tax justice activists from around the world, the symposium hopes to find better ways of coordinating international activities to prevent tax evasion and bringing more public awareness of the issue of tax justice.
RCI’s Wojtek Gwiazda spoke to Dennis Howlett, the Executive Director of the non-profit Canadians For Tax Fairness, about the symposium and the challenges facing those fighting for tax justice.Listen
