Reacting to the launch of the WHO's Technology Access Pool today, with the support of 30 countries, excluding the UK, Heidi Chow, pharmaceuticals campaigner at Global Justice Now said:

Global Justice Now called on the British Government to support Argentina in its stand-off with its private sector lenders, ahead of the country’s formal default deadline on Friday. If Argentina goes into default, it is likely to be the first of many countries, as enormous debt burdens prevent government dealing with the coronavirus crisis across Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Ahead of the Second Reading of the Trade Bill in parliament today, Jean Blaylock, trade campaigner at Global Justice Now said:

“The Trade Bill being debated today entrenches the government’s power to do deals behind closed doors without needing to tell parliament or the people what it is doing. If this feeble excuse for a bill goes through, we could be signed up to a high-risk, damaging US trade deal without any democratic control.
