Flash mobs and protests hit corporate tax cheats across country

    On the heels of their successful prank on GE, which we reported on last week, US Uncut organized nearly 100 Tax Day actions across the country, including this flash mob (above) in San Francisco at a Bank of America, which made $4.4 billion in profits last year but paid no taxes, and this action (below) against Verizon – another corporate tax dodger – at Union Station in Washington D.C.
