Interesting links: Tax Avoidance and Golden Dawn

These links have been suggested to us as being informative:

1. Tax Avoidance. This article by Prem Sikka, Professor of Accounting at Essex Business School, University of Essex, is on how Google and ExxonMobil run rings around outdated tax laws and it also outlines a proposal for dealing with corporate tax avoidance. It is available at:

2. This article traces the rise of the neo-fascist Golden Dawn Movement, sets it in the context of the attack on Greece through austerity, looks at state and police collusion and asks whether arrests of its leaders will see its end. The general article is interesting, but we also suggest that you read the comment by Van Gelis further down, which looks at the wider issues of party politics, the banning of strikes, the indefinite closure of the state broadcaster ERT, the mass sackings of 25,000 state employees (which is a breach of the Greek constitution) and the unnanounced banning of elected parties.

Today parliament has voted to lift the immunity of six MPs from the far-right Golden Dawn party, paving the way for more investigations into accusations that the movement’s members were involved in criminal offences.
