Connections: Global Inequality, the British Empire and Brexit
Danny Dorling speaking at the monthly meeting of “Global Justice Now”, Oxford Town Hall, February 12th 2019.
Global Justice Now campaigns on all aspects of social and economic justice, with a particular (but not exclusive) focus on people in the Global South. Our main campaigns at the moment are focusing on:
• Trade Deals, in particular putting democratic decision-making at the heart of trade policy.
• Migration, focusing both on harmful government policies and negative media coverage.
• Pharmaceuticals, challenging the corporate control of medicines. This is an interesting campaign area because whilst our focus is on the Global South, the UK NHS is challenged by the same issue.
• Food, championing small-scale food producers who are under threat by the increasingly dominant role of very large corporations.
The talk is based on the book “Rule Britannia“. And was given as Theresa May was supposed to be in last minute negotiations with the “EU27”:
