Protesting Mines and Money: Lunch with Farage! @ Business Design Centre

Take a long lunch break and join us to protest Nigel Farage and Brexit financier Arron Banks’ participation in London’s Mines and Money conference.

The two ‘thought leaders’ will be giving lunchtime keynote addresses on the first day of the event.

Joined by frontline defenders from the Philippines, Uganda and Colombia, we will challenge far-right, xenophobic narratives, policies and trade agreements that look set to increase Britain’s complicity in mining destruction, forced migration and human rights abuses.

More details about the creative protest coming soon.

This will be followed by a ‘Toxic Tour’ through the heart of London’s finance and mining district, starting outside Green Park tube station, at 2.30pm.

Join the protest outside Fujitsu’s UK headquarters in London.

Unite is campaigning to save jobs and to defend the union against attempts to victimise reps.

At 10am on Tuesday 5 December, Fujitsu will reconvene the final redundancy hearing for Ian Allinson which was adjourned on 8 November. Ian is one of several reps being unfairly targeted by the company.
