Why we are taking action for Greece, and other questions

June 2015

The bailouts which Greece was given have not benefited the people of Greece one bit. They have flowed into the European banks that recklessly lent the country money. Meanwhile, the financial speculators who created Greece’s woes are actually making large profits by gambling on this ongoing crisis.

We have joined a coalition of organisations in taking action against Greek debt and an end to the enforcing of austerity policies that are causing injustice and poverty in Europe and across the world.

Putting people first - Annual Review 2014

June 2015

Across the world billions of people do not have the resources they need to live decent lives, such as food and water, energy and housing. This is poverty, and it cannot be separated from inequality, the erosion of democracy, discrimination and oppression and the injustice that runs through our own society in Britain.

Profiting from poverty, again

April 2015

The introduction of universal education, the increasing length of compulsory education, the creation of comprehensive schools, the foundation of the NHS – these are some of the greatest social achievements we have ever made in this country, and we remain rightly proud of them. The aid budget could be used to help others to achieve these vital components of a decent society where every life counts.

General election 2015

March 2015

Key issues to raise with your local candidates

Election time is upon us. Traditionally, this is a time where policies get reduced to soundbites and the debate is limited to a narrow political choice between several rather similar visions of the world. This state of affairs is not inevitable. We can influence the debate by pushing forward issues that we’ve campaigned on and asking candidates to address them. This briefing is to help you get some real answers out of politicians on the issues relevant to Global Justice Now when they knock on your door this election.

The poor are getting richer, and other dangerous delusions

January 2015

In January ‘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. At this meeting, these important people spend a great deal of time convincing each other that they are creating a more prosperous world than we’ve ever seen in history. Without their business practices, their overseas investments, their entrepreneurial talent and their philanthropy, you would easily imagine that we would all be much worse off.
