Justice Mail Action 30th June 2014

Dear Justice Mail Friends

Today, Britain is a country where one in five people live below the poverty line and life expectancy in some areas is lower than in some developing countries. Yet the rich keep getting richer opening up a massive inequality gap. In fact, the UK is on course to become one of the most unequal countries in the industrialised world.

Please use the Oxfam link below to email your MP and ask them how their party will tackle the issue of food poverty.

Justice Mail Action 16 Jun 2014

Dear Justice Mail Friends

Climate change is already wreaking havoc in the world’s poorest countries – driving hunger, conflict and extreme weather. This year’s floods brought home to us the reality of climate change in the UK too. But the future could be so much brighter for millions of people if the next government ups its game. There are a million ways to come together to build a safe, clean future.

Use the link below to email the leaders of all the parties in Westminster and urge them to put action on climate change at the heart of their parties’ manifestos for the 2015 General Election.

Justice Mail Action 3 June 2014

Dear Justice Mail Friends

Stop the deadly Tampakan mining project

 

War on Want has drawn to our attention the activities of the Glencore-Xstrata mining company, who want to create the Tampakan mine, which would be one of the world’s largest opencast copper and gold mines.  The mine will be placed in the ancestral home of the B’laan people in the Southern Philippians, four thousand of whom will be displaced.  It is also an area of rainforest and the source of no less than five rivers.  All this will be polluted and destroyed if the mine goes ahead.

 

We are asked to write to Ivan Glasenberg, the Chief Executive Officer of Glencore-Xstrata, and other top mining officials.  Follow the link below to find the message and don’t forget to add your own reasons for writing.

 

Stop Glyncore-Xstrata’s deadly mine
