Voices of Dissent

July 2015

This booklet explores the violence of neoliberalism and its infringements on human rights. It uses case studies which are drawn from the experiences of grassroots communities in South Africa, the UK, Mexico and Colombia to highlight the violence against the right to housing, shelter, land, resources and protest - a violence that is aimed particularly at the poor; at women and at Black people.

This estimate,which is £119.4bn for financial year 2013/14, includes reductions in the estimates of tax avoidance and tax debt,but a significant increase in the estimated tax loss from evasion.
