UK anti-austerity protestors target Starbucks cafes

Hundreds of demonstrators protested at Starbucks cafes across Britain on Saturday accusing the US coffee chain of avoiding paying corporation tax at a time when the government was cutting essential services because of a fall in revenues.


At one central London outlet activists from the anti-austerity UK Uncut movement staged a sit-in, chanting "Starbucks pay your taxes" and briefly setting up a children's crèche before police moved them on. (Reuters)
