All welcome to our Financial Transaction Tax Working group meeting on Wednesday 11th November, 9.30 am

Banks, hedge funds and the rest of the financial sector should pay their fair share to clear up the mess they helped create.

The Financial Transaction Tax is a tax on banks that would give billions to tackle poverty and climate change - in Europe and abroad. It would be applied to trading in bonds, shares and derivatives. The European Commission is proposing a tax of 0.1% on trading in bonds and shares and 0.01% on trading in derivatives. Eleven Member States are working to implement this tax under the EU ‘enhanced cooperation procedure’. France, Greece, Spain, Portugal and Germany are among them but Ireland and Britain have stood outside the group. Michael Noonan is saying no to its introduction

LGBTQ people have been defining 'family' in alternative ways since the beginning of human history. Circles of caring friends, mentors into gay culture, support groups, social networks, organically grown mixtures of biological and vocational relatives... LGBTQ people thrive in the mutually-supportive families
they enrich and build. It is time we celebrate our imaginative, courageous, loving families. Our functional families.
