ACT UP is pushing for a small tax (0.05%) on Wall Street transactions and speculative trades as a means of raising vital funding needed to address the global AIDS epidemic and move towards universal healthcare in the United States. The April 25th demonstration is linked to a global Robin Hood Tax campaign to fund global health, global public goods, jobs, and to tackle climate change (the focus of this great direct action opportunity also links back to HIV PJA's action agenda goals in economic justice).Return to Wall Street and ACT UP to end the global HIV/AIDS crisis!

When: Wednesday - April 25, 2012 at 11am
