Flying the Flag

A couple of opportunities to fly the flag for Cornish progressives.

Put People First

On 28th March thousands will march through London as part of a global campaign to challenge the G20, ahead of their 2nd April summit on the global financial crisis. Even before the banking collapse, the world suffered poverty, inequality and the threat of climate chaos. The world has followed a financial model that has created an economy fuelled by ever-increasing debt, both financial and environmental. Our future depends on creating an economy based on fair distribution of wealth, decent jobs for all and a low carbon future. There can be no going back to business as usual. People from all over the country will join the march on March 28. Be one of them.

The Spring Alliance

The Spring Alliance is a participatory movement to ensure that the European Union puts people and the planet first. It was created by three leading European civil society organisations: the European Environmental Bureau, the European Trade Union Confederation and Social Platform. But the Alliance is much broader than that - it's supported by a network of organisations from all corners of civil society and beyond, including development NGOs, fair-trade associations, anti-poverty campaigners, consumer organisations and representatives from the research and business community.
