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.
