Fair Trade

Fairtrade Logo - smallWe are very keen on Fair Trade. It is an idea whose time has come, and it is motoring. Always check to see if what you buy in the shops has been fairly traded, and if it hasn't been, see if there's an alternative that has.

Trace the Tax

Some of the multinational trading companies are getting away without paying their fair share of taxes. They are able to arrange matters so that they declare very little profit in countries with conventional taxation arrangements. They are able, by a variety of devices, to hide their profits in tax havens, thanks to the secrecy that surrounds the operations of those havens. Join us in campaigning for proper and upright taxation arrangements, so that all countries, including those of the developing world, can receive their proper due.

Refugees and Sanctuary Seekers

Do you ever wonder what the real facts are? Are we being overwhelmed by hordes of people with bogus claims of torture and threat? Or is there a real issue there that a civilised society should address, and that more responsible journalism present differently?

Are those who seek sanctuary within our shores living a life of luxury and enjoying preference over people of the host community? Let's get at the real facts and see if we can help in any way.  http://www.refugeecouncil.org.uk/
