British Prime Minister Liz Truss has scrapped a plan to lower taxes for Britain’s highest earners. The proposal, which was announced just 10 days ago, sparked protests and a warning from the International Monetary Fund. On Sunday, hundreds of thousands of people in Britain took to the streets in a protest organized by the Enough Is Enough campaign.

Laura Dickinson: “A lot of workers and a lot of people that are working in this country have had enough. They’ve had enough of not working full time and not being able to pay their energy bills and not being able to put food on the table.”
