#TaxJustice for #PublicServices Global Week of Action
This June the Global Alliance for Tax Justice, Public Services International, ITUC-Africa, ActionAid, Oxfam and several other partners will organize the  #TaxJustice for #PublicServices Global Week of Action, culminating in World Public Service Day, which was established by the UN in 2003.
During this week trade unions, civil society organizations and NGOs will organize events to raise awareness about issues connected to the funding and advancement of quality public services and social protections to fight poverty and inequality, and to ensure no one is left behind.
The timing of this event, befor the upcoming G20 and SADC meetings also offers an opportunity raise our collective voice and give strength to our demands for tax justice. A key demand is for governments to back the call to establish an inclusive intergovernmental UN Global Tax Body, so that all countries – not just rich G20 countries – have an equal voice in determining international tax policies.
