UK Uncut Protesters target Topshop

Protesters in London closed Topshop’s flagship store on Oxford Street for several hours after it’s boss Sir Phillip Green avoided paying tax on a dividend of £1.2 billion from the parent company Arcadia.

There were also actions across the country, with protesters organising actions in 19 other cities around the country. Vodafone had previously been targeted by the same group after it avoided paying an estimated £6 billion in tax on a merger deal.

Protesters shut down Vodafone stores across the country


Groups of protesters took part in a co-ordinated day of action against mobile phone company Vodafone. Protesters targeted Vodafone after the Government allowed it not to pay tax when it acquired German engineering company Mannesmann for €180bn.

The countrywide action followed after a small group forced Vodafone’s flagship store on Oxford Street to close on Wednesday.
