:: GUERRILLA GIGS EP.2 :: APPLE EUROPEAN HQ, CORK, IRELAND ::
Welcome to the second installment of Guerrilla Gigs. In this episode I traveled to Apple's European headquarters on the outskirts of Cork City to protest against Apple, and the countless other large multinational corporations who are currently dodging paying huge amounts of corporation tax, both here in Ireland and in many other countries globally. I also went to protest against the many governments who are aiding these rich multinationals in doing so, at the expense of their own citizens and services.
Billions of Euro is sucked from countries around the world annually by corporate tax dodging, constantly widening the gap between rich and poor, with the most vulnerable in our societies suffering the most through cuts in funding to important services like hospitals and schools. Services which are vital in tackling inequality and poverty.
Right now around the globe, we have more people than ever before living in abject poverty, millions homeless, without health care, education or even running water, while governments continue to help wealthy soul-less corporations to line their pockets further through tax loopholes and shady deals, gifting away vital capital that could otherwise be used for housing, education, health services, and infrastructure instead of used to prop up the pillars of corruption that our political systems are currently built upon.
