G20 holds the key to a sustainable future

Four days before the 2012 G20 Summit, Oxfam activists gather in front of the Revolution Monument in Mexico City to keep the pressure on G20 leaders. Oxfam is calling on the G20 to:


1. Address Food price volatility by taking action on speculation, biofuels and land, and increase food security through Emergency Food reserves.

2. Commit to reducing inequality through transformational essential services (health and education) financed through fairer tax systems, and by systematically measuring inequality.

3. Agree to mandatory country by country reporting on tax, and recommit to tackling tax havens.

4. Promote new sustainable sources of development finance, including a fair deal on carbon pricing of maritime transport. Call on Europe to implement an FTT/set of financial transaction taxes for climate financing and development.
