OccupyWallSt and AdBusters have announced the #Robinhood Global March for October 29th. They are proposing for the world to rise up and demand for the 1% #Robinhood tax, which is essentially a tax on stocks, commodities, currencies, derivatives, and other trading investments.
Here's the announcement:
#ROBINHOOD GLOBAL MARCH
- On October 29, on the eve of the G20 Leaders Summit in France, let's the people of the world rise up and demand that our G20 leaders immediately impose a 1% #ROBINHOOD tax on all financial transactions and currency trades. Let's send them a clear message: We want you to slow down some of that $1.3-trillion easy money that's sloshing around the global casino each day – enough cash to fund every social program and environmental initiative in the world. Take this idea to your local general assembly and join your comrades in the streets on October 29.
