Towards a just energy system - the struggle to end energy injustice

October 2014

We live in a world of energy injustice. While multinational corporations drive the world towards dangerous climate change, consuming more energy than entire nations, one in five people globally live without electricity because they are unable to access it, and millions more go without because they cannot afford to pay for it.

Transforming our food system: the movement for food sovereignty

October 2012

WDM’s campaign to curb speculation on food tackles one aspect of a broken food system. We’re also helping to build a movement for a just global food system, inspired by activists in the global south.

The global food system is in crisis. Globally we are now producing more food than ever before. But while 1.5 billion people are overweight, 870 million people are affected by chronic hunger. Small-scale farmers are suffering from prices falling below their costs of production due to unfair trade regimes, corporate concentration and the dismantling of state support.

Carbon Capital booklet

March 2013

Fossil fuel companies raise money through a mix of equity and debt. Large companies usually raise equity by selling shares, and the London Stock Exchange is one of the world’s leading share trading venues. The money mostly comes from ordinary people, but we have little say in the decision of fund managers to invest our pensions, insurance revenues and savings in extractive industries.
