100+ American Protesters Descend On Cayman
December 22, 2012
On 13 December 2012, over 100 Americans descended on the Cayman Islands to protest their tax policies and demand that American corporations pay their “fair share of taxes.”
They held signs saying “Bring our tax dollars home” and “We want our money back” and sang a parody song to Harry Belafonte’s “Day-O” with the refrain “Tax evaders time to bring the money home.”
The protest was organized by the US-based activist group CodePink. “The US deficit could be solved with the $150 billion a year that could be recovered from these offshore tax shelters,” said CodePink co-founder Jodie Evans.
