Stop Companies Denying Millions the Chance to Escape Extreme Poverty
Irresponsible multinational companies are lobbying hard against effective new European laws that would lift the lid on the trillions of dollars they pay to governments across Africa for their natural resources.
These secret payments allow unscrupulous leaders to pocket some of the profits instead of investing in vital services like schools, roads and health clinics that would benefit all citizens.
Take action today: Tell our leaders not to be swayed by corporate lobbying. Europe needs strong laws that would help citizens spot corruption and ensure this money is used to lift millions of people out of poverty.
Dear European Leaders,
Please stand up to corporate lobbying against proposed EU laws requiring oil, gas and mining companies to publish payments to foreign governments. Pass strong laws that will help citizens spot corruption and ensure the money is used to lift millions of people out of poverty.[Your comment will be added here]
