Britain: Protests shut Vodafone stores


At least five Vodafone stores were closed in central London on October 30 by protests, said that day. The protests were against the British government’s alleged decision to give companies, such as Vodafone, huge tax breaks of about £6 billion at a time when ordinary people are having their benefits cut or taken away.

Scores of other Vodafone stores across the country have also had to close as protesters demand to know why the Conservative government is choosing to make over half a million people redundant in the public sector, instead of making large corporations pay taxes that they owe.
