Rock band U2"s dream of putting up a good show at the on-going
Glastonbury festival could be marred by angry protesters, who are
planning to disturb their concert. Anti-capitalist group Art Uncut
activists have accused the band of evading tax when their home
country Ireland is facing economic crisis.
“Tax(es) nestling in the band's bank account should be helping
to keep open the hospitals, schools and libraries that are closing
all over Ireland," Contactmusic quoted Art Uncut member Charlie
Dewar as saying.
The activists are planning to protest with banners and placards
in front of the media and the fans of the band. They want to drive
the message to them that they should not evade tax at a time when
their country is facing bad economy.
