Global Justice Oxford relaunch event!

Written by oxford on March 1, 2015 – 8:47 pm -

Global Justice Oxford is relaunching! To celebrate our name change from Oxford WDM, we are holding a relaunch event in Oxford. It’s one of many Global Justice Now relaunches happening all over the country as local groups look forward to campaigning with a new identity. Entry is free and everybody is welcome – you don’t have to be a supporter of our organisation.

Nick Dearden, director of Global Justice Now, is coming to Oxford to speak at our event. If you don’t know much about Global Justice Now – or perhaps you’ve never even heard of us – Nick’s talk will be an accessible introduction to who we are, what we do and why it matters.

Three super-short films

To give a bit of context about our campaigns, we’ll be showing three very short but thought-provoking films.

  • How our banks finance climate change
  • Interview with Naomi Klein
  • Micro-hydro: a positive alternative to Big Energy

Please tell your friends!

The Long Room at Oxford Town Hall holds up to 50 people. We’d like to get as many people along as possible on the night. Please share this blog post far and wide so people know about our event!

When? Tuesday 10th March, 7:30pm

Where? The Long Room, Oxford Town Hall

International Day of Action against TTIP

Written by oxford on February 28, 2015 – 9:35 pm -

Why should corporations have the right to sue governments for making decisions that damage their profits? Under TTIP, this could be a reality. Cigarette companies suing governments for bringing in plain tobacco packaging, energy companies suing governments for phasing out nuclear power…this kind of thing has already happened under similar trade deals elsewhere in the world. Saturday 18th April will be an international day of action against TTIP and other damaging trade deals. Details to be confirmed.
