2pm-6pm, Saturday 10 June, Bristol
Hamilton House, 80 Stokes Croft, Bristol, BS1 3QY
Join us for an afternoon of panel discussions, plus workshops on opposing the post-Brexit UK-US trade deal, defending migrant rights, and fighting corporate power in the age of Trumpism.
Elected on an explicitly racist agenda, Trump is already fulfilling his hard right pledges, while appointing climate change deniers and corporate CEOs to his cabinet.
In France fascist Marine Le Pen is likely to reach the second round of the presidential election. In the Philippines, recently elected president Rodrigo Duterte encourages the extra-judicial killing of drug users and plans to reinstate the death penalty, while the Hindu chauvinist prime minister Narendra Modi is tightening his grip on power in India.
Is this the outcome of 40 years of growing inequality under globalisation? And what can progressives and social movements do to resist the populist right and build real alternatives?
Join us to discuss the fight for global justice in the age of Trumpism.
Please note, this event will be preceded by Global Justice Now’s annual general meeting from 10am at the same venue. Details of the AGM can be found on the 2017 AGM page.
