Online talk and Q&A: 'Article 25 - A People's Strategy for World Transformation'
WhenSunday, 24th January 2021
WhereUK and worldwide, via zoom
Share The World’s Resources (STWR) are hosting an online presentation and discussion about our campaign for Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Article 25 proclaims the right of everyone to adequate food, housing, healthcare and social security. But still today, millions of people subsist without sufficient means for survival. Even in the wealthiest nations, we are witnessing a dramatic rise in levels of hunger, deprivation, social exclusion and economic inequality.
We suggest that only the massed goodwill of ordinary people calling for Article 25 can bring about an end to poverty in a world of plenty through enormous, peaceful and continuous worldwide protests.
Our presentation will outline the political and economic implications of rendering this Article into an enforceable framework of international law. Participants are invited to further engage with these issues, and to join a global movement that calls on governments to share the world’s resources.
Time: 7-8pm GMT on Sunday 24th January [11am PST, 2pm EST, 8pm CET]
If you would like to attend, please email Victoria Gater below to register and receive the zoom link. Numbers are limited and if the event becomes full we will keep you informed about our next talk.
