It’s summer and Global Justice Oxford is planning lots of events – please come along at 7.30 on Tuesday 14th August at Oxford Town Hall. New members are always welcome!
Hello! First, a huge apology for the lack of updates to our site. We had some technical issues and weren’t able to update anything. However we have our May meeting coming up next week, on Tuesday 8th May at 7:30 PM in Oxford Town Hall. This will be our AGM, where we review the year and make our all important decisions on the core roles of the group – if you’re interested in taking on a larger role in the group this is your chance! And of course, new members are always welcome.
The last few months have been a bit of a whirlwind of political upheaval. If you’re interested in joining us in campaigning for social justice around the world maybe you’d like to come along and get invovled with Global Justice Oxford. Our next meeting will be on the 11th July in Oxford Town Hall at 7:30 PM. As it’s summer we’ve got lots of festival events to plan so it’s a great time to sign up and volunteer!
As always you can drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, tweet us @globaljusticeox, or find us on Facebook (we’re “Global Justice Oxford”)
In Oxford we are lucky enough to have two great events in a short space of time, and Global Justice Oxford will be running a stall at both!
The One World Fair is held on Saturday 19th November in Oxford Town Hall. There will be stalls for fairtrade goods, human rights organisations, environmental groups and much more! This is run by Oxfam, and we will be there all day with campaign information, leaflets and all sorts.
The Green Fair will be held on Saturday 3rd December and is run by the green party, promising to be “a celebration of all things green”! Again we’ll be there with a stall all day so come and find us to find out all about our group.
Hope to see you there, and as always check out our events page to see what we’re planning!
Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 13th September, so why not come along and get involved? We’ll be discussing our key campaigns and hopefully planning some speaker events. New members are always welcome! Keep an eye on our sidebar for the next meeting date.
Have you seen Monsanto weedkiller in your local garden centre? You might have noticed the label looking a little different.
Monsanto’s flagship weedkiller, Roundup, is made from a chemical called glyphosate that the World Health Organisation has found to probably cause cancer. Yet its use is now so widespread that traces are found in one out of every three loaves of bread in the UK. via http://monsanto.globaljustice.org.uk/
So Global Justice has asked activists to relabel the packages they find. You can find some media coverage below:
Get invovled at http://monsanto.globaljustice.org.uk/ and if you’re in the Oxford area why not pop in to one of our meetings? New members always welcome!
