Attac Jersey is a Member of the International Tax Justice Network. We are Members of the Association for the Taxation of financial Transactions for the Benefit of Citizens, (ATTAC) and the Tax Justice Network, (TJN). The aims of both organisations are to research, educate and campaign to further public awareness. We are seeking to alleviate poverty through the creation of just taxation systems to fund social goods.

Jersey was bailed out in September 2008 when the British government saved its own banks from collapse with tax payer’s money. Had this not occurred then the dominoes would have been tumbling here as well. This is not recognised locally (at least officially).
