Global Justice Now youth network

Global Justice Now’s youth network is a space for young people to come together to share ideas and experiences and take action.  

Across the globe, the rich and powerful have used the economic crisis to strengthen themselves at the expense of the majority. Brexit has empowered the most conservative forces in society. And young people are bearing the brunt, faced with a life of debt, insecure employment and anxiety.

The network exists to make sure that youth voices are part of global movements against corporate power, inequality, climate change and racism. Get involved if you want to help build a world in which people come before profit.

My week at the Black Lives Matter protests

I had a bit of a moral conundrum over attending last week’s Black Lives Matter protests. How responsible was it to attend a mass gathering during a pandemic disproportionately affecting the BAME community and other minority groups? Ultimately I decided it was too important to sit out, particularly for those of us with the privilege of being able to make that choice.  The week wasan important reminder of the solidarity and empowerment many of us feel - maybe uniquely - at protests. Not to mention the work that we must all be doing to support an anti-racist movement.
