11am, London Blackfriars / Victoria Embankment, Sat 20 Oct 2012
The MPs expenses scandal was followed by Liberal Democrats and Tories breaking pre-election promises on tuition fees and NHS re-organisation, undermining the entire basis of modern democracy, and paving the way for the wholescale theft of education and health entitlements that British taxpayers have been paying-in to for generations.
Bank bailouts steal billions from ordinary taxpayers while bank bosses steal million pound bonuses, the Libor scandal exposes the banks as systematic thieves, HSBC and Standard Chartered launder hundreds of billions for murdering Colombian narco-capitalists and for repressive regimes.
Multi-nationals and the super-rich dodge trillions in taxes which could wipe-out any deficit many times over, police kill with impunity, rioters serve jail time for stealing water, Bullingdon Club hooligans protect their friends by firing tax collectors instead of jailing tax criminals and punishing criminal bankers.
