Can you help us thank your political representative Adam Bandt MP?
Recently Adam Bandt of Melbourne has spoken on overcoming tax avoidance and we’d like to say thanks.
In Parliament Adam Bandt said:
Thanks to the work of the likes of the Tax Justice Network, of Micah Challenge and of a number of journalists who have been drawing attention to the behaviour of multinational companies here in Australia, we know that one thing that could be done to help make companies pay their fair share of tax is to be prepared to name and shame companies if they do the wrong thing.
You can read the whole speech here.
Whenever a politician engages with the issues we all care passionately about, it’s important to encourage, thank, or even challenge them. It doesn't mean we support that politician, or endorse everything they say. But if they don’t hear from passionate people in their electorate when they do speak up, it’s easy for them to give up, get cynical, or assume their electorate doesn’t care about overcoming tax avoidance.
