It would be easy to focus on the names of the rich, the powerful, and friends of the powerful at the center of the Panama Papers revelations, but to me, the video below is the real story.
There are real, live, everyday people who have suffered and continue to suffer as a result of these practices. They are victims of Syrian barrel bombs. They are Russian women and girls kidnapped and sold into sex slavery. They are Ugandans unable to receive health care because an oil company evaded $400 million in taxes.
Watch the video and hear some of their stories. Then go here and begin to read the reports.
