Food campaign news
Something for the Tory party conference
Last night we projected images from our supporters onto the Tory party conference, calling for bankers to stop betting on food.
For the past month we've been collecting as many photos as possible from members of the UK public holding up messages to George Osborne to regulate food speculation. We've had a great response with hundreds of photos and last night we projected those messages onto the Tory party conference:
The Tory party conference starts today and so we know that George Osborne is in town. By projecting messages on the conference venue and on surrounding buildings we are hoping that he feels the mounting public pressure for him to support new EU proposals to clamp down on excessive speculation.
We started off at the NIA, opposite the Tory conference venue:
Time is running out and George Osborne has to make a decision very soon about whether to keep watering down the rules which would enable banks to continue betting on hunger or side with the UK public and back strong limits on the banks.
