The World Economic Forum's annual meeting at Davos is currently underway for the first time in the summer months.

A group of millionaires have joined protests against the WEF gathering of the business and political elite demanding that governments “tax us now” to tackle the building gap between rich and poor.

The unlikely protesters' group “patriotic millionaires”, called on world leaders attending the annual conference on Sunday to immediately introduce fresh taxes on the wealthy in order to tackle the “cost of living scandal playing out in multiple nations around the world”.
