Theresa May in the US and Turkey: Not in Our Name


30 January 2017

Donald Trump’s presidency is turning out to be every bit as dangerous and divisive as we feared. His executive order instituting restrictions on refugees fleeing for safety and nationals from certain Middle East countries is a violation of the US’s international duties, and its impact will spread racism, hatred and fear in the US and beyond, given its specific impact on Muslims.

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. Yet despite the relatively strong performance of the German economy, the result of Sunday’s election shows a sharp swing to the right. It is part of the growing political and social polarisation overtaking Europe, created by anti-migrant and anti-establishment sentiments.

How Trump's presidency has kicked off a wave of resistance in the US


28 April 2017

It’s been hard to find silver linings in the United States these last few months. Our arcane electoral system put a no-holds-barred bigot in office, and – via a disastrous budget bill and healthcare proposal – his party is competing with itself over who can condemn the most poor people of colour to lives of poverty and misery.

The Dangers of Trump

May 2017

No US president has aroused the same level of global public outrage before even occupying the White House as Donald Trump.

Campaign group Global Justice Now has warned there are just months to stop ‘TTIP on steroids’ as the latest round of trade talks between the United States and United Kingdom governments begins in London. 

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.

In response to the G20 communique, Nick Dearden, director of social justice group Global Justice Now said:

“Angela Merkel has managed to hold it together – just about. The divisions in the international elite have nearly been papered over by this statement, but at the expense of any meaningful strategy. The statement lacks any vision for getting us out of this crisis, takes no responsibility for the state of the world, and is evidently just so much hot air for most of the countries who signed onto it.
