    Occupy Edmonton protesters held a march on October 29 to call for a Robin Hood tax. They are calling on G20 leaders to immediately impose a 0.05 per cent tax on banks for financial transactions and currency trades. They claim that profits made from the tax could go back to programs to benefit society. "It's a good way to generate some revenue to deal with global poverty, to deal with climate change," spokesperson Chelsea Taylor told CTV News. According to the group the Canadian government has shown a lack of leadership on a Robin Hood tax. "Finance minster Jim Flaherty...

    In what seems to be a weekly, if not daily, number of protest marches around the globe recently, this weeks' March 26th “March for the Alternative” is the latest effort to stir the pot from the global powers-that-be. As we have discovered in recent weeks and months, these movements and revolutions are given the appearance of the grassroot actions of frustrated citizens of the world, yet they always seem to come back to the same handful of people and groups.

    In a recent post covering a forthcoming London protest by UK Uncut dubbed the "March for the Alternative," NRB's Michelle Horstman introduced us to the Robin Hood Tax. It's pretty much what it sounds like, a proposal to seize wealth from banks and redistribute it to "fight poverty" and "tackle climate change."
