Please take action to make EU sanctions in Burma a reality. by nadiacatkinhillman

European foreign ministers will decide on Burma this Monday – urge your own foreign minister to back targeted sanctions and incentives!

Send Your Message

This Monday, October 15, the foreign ministers of the 27 European Union states will meet in Luxembourg–and decide whether to live up to their warnings to the Burmese junta.

Three weeks ago, the EU vowed to step up sanctions on the Burmese regime if it cracked down violently on the protesters. If the EU fails to take action now, the Burmese regime will take it as a sign that international pressure is mere talk, and won’t hesitate to commit further atrocities.

Burma isn’t a democracy, but EU countries should be. Continue reading



Carbon Justice: ethical responses to climate change by nadiacatkinhillman
August 10, 2007, 9:06 am
Filed under: international, justice

One might argue that the british summer never really begun, but the impending inevitability of its end marked by leaves falling and nights closing in is almost upon us. It’s time to maximise on sunshine and take advantage of al fresco events like this…
Where: Bristol Urban Beach, Redcliffe Wharf, Redcliffe, Bristol, BS1 6SR

When: August 28th 6-8pm

What: Climate change impacts the whole planet, but the poorest countriesin the world are where it will be felt the most. In the richest
countries where the problem is caused, it is tempting to think that
easy solutions – like offsetting – will suffice. Meanwhile, going low
carbon in places like the UK is seen as a middle class luxury leaving
low income areas with the worst environmental problems. This event
will explore how our responses to climate change can meet the greatest
need first- home and abroad.
