PSA for Nurses and Heal America, Support the Robin Hood Tax

Fans call it the “Robin Hood” tax, but it’s more formally known as the Financial Transaction Tax (FTT). It’s a small fee on large transactions of currencies, bonds and shares. More than 65 U.S. and international environmental, health, labor, faith, anti-poverty and other organizations, including National Nurses United have endorsed the tax that currently has more support in Europe.

Join the National Nurses United and other supporters for a march on Washington, D.C. on Saturday, April 20, 2013 to call on the White House and the Treasury to impose a tax on Wall Street trades on stocks, bonds, derivatives and other financial instruments.

Among endorsers of the event are the AFL-CIO, Health Gap (Global Action Project), Oxfam America, National People’s Action, Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, United Students Against Sweatshops, Friends of the Earth, National Alliance of Latin American and Caribbean Communities, ACT V: The End of AIDS, European Federation of Public Services Unions, NFL Players Association, Public Services International, Korean Health and Medical Workers Union.
