Watch: Demonstrators demand 'tax on the rich' ahead of Davos summit

Demonstrators from the Swiss Socialist Youth, Strike WEF, and Greenpeace gathered at Davos Postplatz on Sunday to demand a climate tax on the super-rich attending the World Economic Forum annual meeting.

Activists had completed a two-day hike from Küblis to Davos, where they held an authorised protest.

Signs saying “Tax the Rich, Save the Climate” and “World Economic Failure” were displayed before 1,500 business leaders - including representatives from oil companies BP, Chevron, and Saudi Aramco - who attended the opening of the meeting on Monday.
