The Robin Hood Tax campaign is relatively new in Denmark, and launched in March 2011. A number of organisations are behind it, including international development and domestic charities, as well as green and faith groups.
The Danish campaign is asking for a Financial Transaction Tax to help the poorest at home and abroad, and to tackle climate change.
Unfortunately the Government does not support a Financial Transaction Tax, but the Danish campaign is continuing to lobby them. The opposition Social Democrat Party is supportive, however, and with an election taking place within the next few months it is time for campaigners in Denmark to up the pressure in the political arena.
