No, but they can (and will) lobby "wealthly" countries in an attempt to persuade lawmakers to impose such taxes. A scheme to not only redistribute wealth but also skim as much as they can from the proceeds as an "administrtive" fee.

“Where is the media?”

In the back pocket of international communism. They want to be part of the new world order.
