FURTHER PROTESTS against tax avoidance by big business forced the temporary closure of Topshop and Vodafone stores in Leeds city centre on Saturday.
The demonstrations, organised by UK Uncut and Leeds Against the Cuts, were joined by students who had just ended a 17-day occupation of the Michael Sadler building at the University of Leeds, according to the Guardian.
The groups managed to close both stores for a short period of time on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.
Vodafone and Sir Philip Green’s Arcadia group of fashion retail stores, which includes Topshop, have been accused of avoiding tax in the UK by the protest groups.
