#climate and energy – Global Justice #Manchester event Thurs 21st May

Global Justice Manchester’s next education and reflection evening- relevant both for the situation of people in the UK and Global South- the 1%’s advantage and jeopardising our common climate- come along and invite your friends and associates.

With the climate talks coming and a questionably sympathetic UK government whither Global Justice, energy and climate change?

“To ensure everyone has access to energy and tackle climate change, we need to take control of energy from big business and finance. A just energy system is one where energy is fairly distributed and democratically controlled and managed, recognising environmental limits.
Around the world, people are resisting coal mines and oil companies, fighting against privatisation and campaigning to stem the flow of money to coal, oil and gas. Communities are building sustainable and fair energy systems and winning access to energy for the first time. ”

Sam Lund – Harket will talk about these issues and Global Justice Now’s campaign on energy and climate change.

Sam campaigns as part of GJN’s campaigns and policy team to end UK financial sector involvement in harmful energy projects.

The event will be held at Greenfish Resource Centre, 46 – 50 Oldham St,
Manchester, M4 1LE, starting at 18.00 for a couple of hours.
