Quote of the Day
May 20, 2012

"Where the world financial crisis has brought about the
loss of millions of jobs, socialized private debt
burdens and now risks causing significant human rights
regressions through wide-ranging austerity packages, a
financial transaction tax (FTT) is a pragmatic tool for
providing the means for governments to protect and
fulfil the human rights of their people.'

Magdalena Sepulveda, United Nations
special rapporteur on extreme poverty
and human rights
