The Norwegian campaign launched in November 2010, and has been attracting widespread support among the public and in the media. It is made up of a number of development agencies, youth organisations, trade unions and green groups who have been helping to bring Sherwood to Norway.
The campaign is asking for politicians to support a Financial Transaction Tax (FTT) to provide funds to fight poverty and climate change at home and abroad.
The Government is supportive of a global FTT on currencies, and is considering implementing a bank levy in the future. The Merry Men and Women of Norway will be increasing the pressure on the government over the next few months to make sure this turns into a political reality.
