Please use the Reviews on this item to leave your thoughts and feelings and deepest wishes.
Not in the UK? Use the amazon.com link.
What do we do?
Protest with one click by downloading the free eBook, Pay Your Taxes: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pay-Your-Taxes-ebook/dp/B00AKN9AJ4. That's it.
And then what?
The book is free until January 1st and the hope is that by then it will have become one of the most popular books in the Kindle store. It's an easy way to help send a clear message to Amazon: Pay your taxes!
Is a Kindle required?
No, you can download the book if you've got the Kindle app on your phone, tablet or computer.
What if I can't/don't want to download the book?
That's fine. Use the Reviews to leave a clear message to Amazon about their corporate responsibilites.
Is this actually a real book?
Yes, there's a short illustrated story inside it. It's got Balrogs and Paul Daniels in it. You're not obliged to read it.
Are UK Uncut involved in this?
No, this is entirely organised by the folks behind eldink.co.uk. But we've included a shoutout to UK Uncut in the book, just because they're cool.
Who is Asher Gowan?
No one. It's a joke. Try saying it in an Irish accent. If you still don't get it, try saying "Asher Gowan Gowan Gowan" in an Irish accent.
Why target Amazon? What they're doing is perfectly legal. Shouldn't we be targeting the government?
Sure, the only real solution to tax avoidance is for the government to close loopholes, and anything that puts pressure on them is great. But it's worth remembering that loopholes exist because multinationals demand them. Closing loopholes is bad for growth and investment in UK business, which is why the government are reluctant to adress the issue. So one small step we can take to help is to make tax avoidance absolutely toxic, a PR disaster as bad as oil spills or employing predatory DJs for 40 years.
