Oxfam Calls on G20 Leaders to Curb Global Inequality | November 14, 2014


On Thursday, anti-poverty campaigners with the group Oxfam donned the masks of Obama and other world leaders as they called for the leaders at the G20 summit to take action against global wealth inequality. Oxfam Australia chief executive Helen Szoke said the gap between rich and poor is increasing.

Helen Szoke: “What we see are that many countries in the world are not getting the benefits of the profits that are gleaned, for example, by multinational companies. The G20 are in a position to make decisions around global tax reforms. There’s already been recognition that we have to deal with the issue of tax havens. Now, this is just one of the many things that can be done to actually ensure that we continue to lift people out of poverty.”
