An actor wearing a giant Mark Zuckerberg head and holding a bag full of Euro notes welcomed Finance Ministers ahead of the EcoFin meeting on Tuesday. Holding up a speech bubble saying “Tax Me!” it was part of Avaaz’s campaign calling on the EU to introduce a digital service tax on the revenues of tech giants, that has been signed by over 650.000 citizens.
