UK Uncut targets Topshop and Vodafone over tax arrangements.
Movement invades stores in push for government to tax the rich and big companies more instead of making budget cuts
With superglue and megaphones, pop-up protests forced several branches of Topshop and Vodafone around the country to close today on one of the busiest trading days of the year.
Campaigners staged a sit-in at Sir Philip Green's flagship London Topshop store, and in Brighton a few glued themselves to the branch windows, while other high streets in towns and cities across Britain saw similar protests in a day of action against the tax arrangements of rich individuals and big businesses.

Yo, I live near Brighton and I've heard stories of the protests of Vodafone, a handful of people making a ruckus, if only the media would cover the issue properly many more would turn up. Brighton used to be a hot-bed of protest but there is a lot of London money moving into the area and the place has really changed.
The protest talks about the very rich avoiding 25 billion in taxes and a total of 125 billion UK of taxes not collected in total, yet it's me and my friends who have to tighten our collect belt to help the economy. No way! Tax the rich according to the law and then we can have a discussion.
The UK government is a joke, only in it for themselves, Vodafone got away with a 6 billion uk tax bill and then one of their employees gets a job with the ruling coalition.
