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.

Duke of Wellington Statue

COME TO ACTION WITH US IN SOLIDARITY AND SUPPORT FOR one of the oldest forests in Europe - BIALOWIEZA IN POLAND. We need to take our part in stopping the illegal and greedy logging there NOW! We, citizens of Earth, shall not allow LOOSING one of the last remaining pieces of untouched nature in Europe FOREVER!

JOIN THE CREATIVE SOLIDARITY HAPENNING in Edinburgh, which is taking place at the Princes Street, next to the Duke of Wellington statue. There will be ways for you to show support to the Bialowieza forest and to the activitsts on the site. We want them, and the Polish government who allows the illegal logging to know, that the people of the world have their eyes on the situation.
