Who We Are

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 trade system and a suffocating debt burden. The following year a group of activists and organisations met to keep the spirit of those events going. Since then the Edinburgh World Justice Festival has continued to keep world justice issues on the agenda in our city. The Festival gives us an opportunity to explore what we as individuals and as a community can do to work for positive change.

EWJF Launch Night 2017

What a fantastic launch night, thank you to everyone that came. We heard about the history and ideals of #EWJF, and highlighted some of the best events on during this year's festival, which runs until October 16th. Join us for any of our free events, the next of which is tonight at 7pm, where we'll be launching 'From Hiroshima to Faslane', an exhibition documenting survivors of the atomic bomb and their visit to Faslane anti-nuclear camp.

Supporters of EWJF

This was my first time participating in the EWJF and I will recommend that UNISON and Scottish Solidarity with Kurdistan continue our involvement in future years. The benefit of participating to develop links with other groups and reach a wider audience was invaluable. I look forward to the day when such festivals are no longer needed but in the meantime keep up the good work.

UNISON Branch Secretary Stephen Smellie

I recall taking part in the great Make Poverty History march in Edinburgh, and before that the excellent Jubilee 2000 campaign on world debt. With the credit crunch, action on world poverty is now even more urgent and so the Edinburgh World Justice Festival is an even more vital contribution to the campaign. It has my full support and encouragement.

George Foulkes MSP, Scottish Parliament

I fully support the aims of the Edinburgh World Justice Festival. Knowledge and understanding of the causes of poverty, war and injustice are the first steps in tackling these issues. The simple act of discussing and debating the problems affecting people around the world provides hope and optimism for the future.

Councillor Steve Cardownie Festival and Events Champion, The City of Edinburgh Council
