Election 2019: Where the parties stand on climate justice

We have a few more days before the 2019 elections. Rival parties are promising a raft of tougher policies, higher budgets and commitments to protect our environment and address the ongoing planetary climate emergency.

Election 2019: All the main parties are competing on global justice – except for one


09 December 2019

Normally during election time it’s sad to see global issues relegated to the bottom of the political agenda. This hasn’t been the case in 2019. The party manifestos are full of pledges that we’ve been pushing for over the last few years. Here are my own highlights that I want to share – and I hope Global Justice Now supporters feel proud.

A Global Justice Now spokesperson said:

“The leak of the Trump Trade Files has revealed the threat to NHS drug prices, to food standards and to our democracy itself from a US-UK trade deal. Wherever the leak came from, no one has disputed that the documents are real. They are information, not disinformation.

"Voters can now clearly see what the Conservative government has been willing to put on the table in these trade talks, and will be able to make an informed choice on 12 December.”

Election 2019: Young people - have you registered to vote?


22 November 2019

The past ten years of government policies have left young people in a dire predicament. Faced with a growing housing crisis, mountains of student debt, a lack of youth services and the worsening climate crisis, the choice of who to vote for in the upcoming general election on 12 December is undoubtedly a very important one for young people today.

Election 2019: For the first time, climate change is a key issue

The sustained climate mobilisations since last year have brought the climate crisis to the fore, not just in daily conversation, but crucially in government policy circles as well. The UK parliament declared a climate change emergency last May following big protests from Extinction Rebellion and the School Strikes for Climate.

Campaign group Global Justice Now today called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to order the release of multiple documents, dubbed the ‘Trump Trade Files’, relating to trade talks between the UK government and the Trump administration, in advance of the general election on 12 December, so that the electorate can be properly informed on the government’s plans for post-Brexit trade.
