Demand energy justice

1 in 5 do not have access to electricity. End the scandal of fuel poverty - in the UK and around the world

Latest news

On Tuesday 3rd of February 100 people from across the UK and different walks of life will be travelling together to Brussels on the Eurostar to protest at the next round of negotiations of the controversial trade deal being pushed by the EU and the USA – the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

Over the course of two days, the #noTTIP delegation will lobby their MEPs, take part in a demonstration at the European Commission, network with other campaigners and activists from across Europe and take part in a corporate lobby tour of Brussels.

While world leaders gather in Davos for the annual World Economic Forum, our new report and interactive infographics have slammed what we call the “dangerous delusions” of the summit.

In 2014 Bill Gates, a regular attendee at Davos, made a widely reported statement that, “By 2035, there will be almost no poor countries left in the world.”

The extent of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership’s (TTIP) unpopularity across Europe was exposed today as the European Commission published the results of its largest public consultation in history. The results of the consultation, launched last year, were scheduled to be published in late 2014, but were delayed following an unprecedented number of largely negative responses.

Greece lights up Europe


27 January 2015

It’s difficult to overestimate the importance of the Greek election last Sunday. It is the first time in decades that a government has come to power in Europe which is both hostile to neoliberal economics and grounded in social movements. The people who have suffered most from the financial crisis have created a spark of hope for all of us.

Hope lies in challenging the power of the rich

Today ‘the great and the good’ meet in Davos, Switzerland to discuss how the world is changing, and how corporate executives and senior politicians should respond to these changes.

Speak truth to power


20 January 2015

I started working as a fundraiser at the World Development Movement in 2007, almost eight years ago to the day. Coming from a large international development charity, WDM looked like a rare authentic voice, unafraid to speak the truth and to openly challenge the government and big business.
