Big banks are hiding billions in tax havens around the world. In just 24 hours, the European Parliament can push through a reform to make them pay their fair share of tax on their already oversized profits — but to win they need our support.

Bankers are using complex accounting tricks to avoid paying tax like the rest of us, and they’re not even required to tell us where their money is.
