Ce lobby  tour à Paris vous propose de partir à la découverte des entreprises, institutions financières, firmes d’audit, cabinets de lobbying, associations professionnelles et autres qui contribuent à freiner les mesures pour la justice fiscale, en France et au niveau européen.

Le lobby tour est organisé par CEO, Observatoire des Multinationales, Attac France, ActionAid France, CCFD-Terre Solidaire, Plateforme Paradis fiscaux et Judiciaires.
