The Edinburgh World Justice Festival

1st OCT - 17th Oct 2016 Migration: roots and responses

Edinburgh World Justice Festival

In the summer of 2005, while the G8 met in Scotland and made promises that have yet to be kept, a people’s movement was born in Edinburgh. Under the banner of “Make Poverty History” a quarter of a million people marched on Edinburgh’s streets calling for an end to man-made poverty through changes to a glaringly unjust global trade system and a suffocating debt burden. The following day the G8 alternatives conference was held. Since then, the Edinburgh World Justice Festival has continued to keep world justice issues on the agenda in our city.

TWO DAYS BEFORE THE FESTIVAL :EUSA are putting on a talk on the rights of asylum seekers, refugees and migrants, and are putting particular weight on what the UK can do to support these groups, particularly following the vote to leave the European Union. Our main speaker is an inspirational man called Lord Apetsi, who earlier this year narrowly avoided deportation back to Ghana, due to coordinated UK-wide campaign to prevent the Home Office from taking him away from his family. There is more information in the event page I have attached:

We have been contacted by the organisation New European, and will be promoting their activity during the talk - I have also attached a link to their page here:
