Open letter to PM on the Panama Papers

A coalition of Australian organisations has today called on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to end the Government’s silence over the Panama Papers and to commit to taking action on tax dodging by wealthy individuals and corporations.

Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA, the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), the Community and Public Sector Union (CPSU), ActionAid Australia, the Australian Council of Social Services (ACOSS), the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, GetUp!, Greenpeace, SEED, the Tax Justice Network of Australia and UnitingJustice Australia are among the 44 signatories of an open letter demanding that the Prime Minister take action to end tax dodging practises that have robbed critical resources from the Australian budget.

The letter calls on the Turnbull government to act on tax avoidance and reminds the Prime Minister of the Australian Government’s responsibility to “promote the wellbeing of all Australians, not the selfish interests of a few”.
