Exhibition at Kendal library  Jan 21st – Feb 3rd

Kendal library kindly agreed to host our GJN photo exhibition “Monsanto on Trial”. Based on the recent UK tour of Farida Akhter,  a Bangladeshi economist and founder of biggest collection of community seed banks in the world. She visited the UK before going to the Hague for the ‘Monsanto Trial’.

Global Justice Now commissioned photo journalist Jordi Ruiz Cirera to create a photo exhibition by visiting some of these witnesses in India and Bangladesh. His photos tell the stories of farmers who are fighting Monsanto to work out an alternative model of farming.

Please visit it while it is there.

To coincide with the national and international action to protest at the inauguration of Donald Trump we held a protest on Victoria Bridge with our own banner. We had very positive responses from passing motorists and quite a lot of people stopped for information and discussion.

The World Development Movement has now been renamed  Global Justice Now.

The South Lakeland WDM as a local branch of the World Development Movement is now called South Lakes Global Justice Now

We are a group of committed local people who campaign to tackle the root causes of global poverty and injustice. Global Justice Now is a democratic movement in the UK which campaigns in solidarity with people in the global South.

The group recognises that rich countries, international institutions and big business knowingly make decisions that are leading to injustice and inequality on a massive scale. It does not have to be like this. We have both the wealth and the means to end poverty.
