The expected shock of the German elections


29 September 2017

As expected and based on numerous pre-election polls, Angela Merkel has secured her fourth term as German Chancellor.

Five ways to challenge the 1% this autumn


28 September 2017

Summer has come to an end, it’s back to school, university and work – and it’s time to get organised and mobilise!

Responding to reports that Donald Trump will make a 'working visit' to the UK in the New Year, Nick Dearden, director of Global Justice Now said:

“If the Trump visit is back on, so is the mass opposition to it. Theresa May may be hoping that the heat has died down, but she must prepare to be disappointed. Every day that Trump remains President, the opposition to his politics of hate and prejudice is only getting stronger. Whether the location of this ‘working visit’ is the heart of Downing Street or a golf resort in Scotland, we will be there.

Responding to the news that UK banks are to check 70 million bank accounts as part of Theresa May's attempts to create a 'hostile environment' towards migrants, Aisha Dodwell, a migration campaigner with Global Justice Now said:

A new report, published by influential campaign group Another Europe is Possible, has been released today. Brexit and immigration: prioritising the rights of all workers can be viewed here.

Big Business Britain - How corporate lobbyists dominate secret meetings with Brexit negotiators in London and Brussels

August 2017

Brexit negotiators in London and Brussels are far more exposed to business interests than the concerns of civil society. Official statistics, analysed by Corporate Europe Observatory and Global Justice Now, reveal that Brexit ministers in the UK had six corporate lobby meetings for every one with civil society groups. For the EU’s Brexit taskforce, headed by the Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier, the figure is three corporate lobby meetings for every one civil society group meeting. Big Finance and agriculture interests dominated the lobby meetings held in both London and Brussels.
