Robin Hood Campaign to join AIDS mobilization

22 July 2012
Public Services International – advocating for fair taxation to fund public services such as health care – will be represented as part of our Quality Public Services—Action Now! campaign along with other Robin Hood Tax supporters in a high profile AIDS mobilisation in Washington DC, Tuesday 23 July.

The Robin Hood Tax movement, including Health GAP, VOCAL-NY, ACT UP, National People’s Action (NPA) and National Nurses United (NNU), will be joined by other activists in protests in Washington, D.C. on TUESDAY, JULY 24 at NOON to say:  We Can End AIDS, the theme of the protests. An estimated 30,000 protesters are expected to march, attend rallies and participate in symbolic actions in the course of the day to underscore the need for immediate and substantial funding for AIDS treatment.  

The July 24 marches are set to take place during the International AIDS Conference, held July 22-28, with scientists, public health advocates, economists and activists in attendance.

“We can end AIDS.  And a Robin Hood Tax is key to getting there, by funding AIDS treatment, prevention and healthcare,” said Jennifer Flynn, managing director of   Health GAP.  “It is also the way to provide jobs, fight climate change and address a host of problems both here in the U.S. and abroad.”
