Stop Companies Denying Millions the Chance to Escape Extreme Poverty

Supporters

Some irresponsible multinational companies are lobbying hard to water down proposed 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 and prevent citizens from ensuring the money is used properly for vital services like schools, roads and health clinics that would benefit all.

Letter to
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.
