Stop the Great Nature Sale


21 November 2013

During the next 2 days, the UN is hosting an international conference in Edinburgh to put a price on nature.

Under the guise of sustainability, big business wants to turn air, water and biodiversity into commodities that can be traded for profit. This will result in increased exploitation of natural resources instead of protecting them.

You can help us make sure that make sure that the delegates at the conference hear loud and clear that nature is #notforsale.

The hostile environment won't end with Windrush, we should eradicate it altogether

In June 1948 thousands of people from the Caribbean were invited, by the British government, to come to Britain and help rebuild the country post World War Two. They are known as the Windrush generation, taking the name of the first boat to land here that year. Seventy years later, up to 50,000 of them are facing deportation.  

Liam Fox’s trade deals come up against the reality of public opinion


18 April 2018

Eighty-two per cent of Brits would rather not have a trade deal with the US than sacrifice decent food standards. Only 8% would put a trade deal first. So says a new opinion poll conducted by the Institute for Public Policy Research.

We must not, in any way shape or form give it uncritical time or celebrate it. But instead, fight the UK’s hostile environment towards migrants and challenge a culture that normalises this speech.
