Tax dodging

A few weeks back two of our congregation joined other campaigners from Christian Aid for an award ceremony with a difference. Dressed in evening wear, they walked from Reading station to the offices of Price Waterhouse to present employees with an award for being a company in the best position to do something about the scandal of tax dodging that is keeping poor countries poor.

Apparently the employees, having been warned in advance, were all carrying something in each hand so that they could not accept the proffered leaflets, but the mood of the event was very positive.
