The Dutch Robin Hood Tax campaign launched in September 2011, and is led by Oxfam Novib.
The Dutch campaign believes that in these times of crisis everyone should pay their fair share, including the banks and big financial institutions. The revenue raised by a Robin Hood Tax should help poor people both at home and abroad.
Currently the Government is warm in its support of an FTT, with an emphasis on implementation in the whole EU as opposed to a few countries instead. With pressure from the Dutch campaign, there is an opportunity to win the Dutch government over, and get a Robin Hood Tax in place.
