Notts Uncut Xmas Special gets ‘pigged’ with 3 arrests

On Saturday 17th December Notts UnCut yet again highlighted tax-dodging companies who are peddling their produce on Nottingham City high streets such as Boots (Swiss HQ), Vodaphone (Luxembourg HQ) and the various Arcadia Gruop outlets like Top Man/Top Shop, Burtons and Dorothy whose ownership was transferred by Philip Green to his wife who for tax purposes is based in Monaco, so avoiding UK tax.

On this occasion the force of the law decided that this message was too rich for Nottingham people and decided to arrest 2 of the protesters, and a third when the protest ended up at the Bridewell police station, demanding release of the first two.

All in this together?
