Stop UK aid fuelling big business

The government is using the UK aid budget to expand its own markets across the globe, with no thought for the people it should be helping or its impact on the climate crisis – dubbed 'Empire 2.0'.

It is contributing to massive use of fossil fuels, the erosion of worker’s rights, and the promotion of private business over public welfare. 

Can you donate today to help push for a better use of UK aid money? 

Your support can help us put pressure on our government to ensure that aid money is spent where it is needed most – rather than boosting the profits of big business.

The current system ensures that the rich will continue to get richer while the majority get poorer – despite aid money having a legal requirement to be spent on poverty reduction.
