One small example is where the tobacco company Philip Morris sued Uruguay after having enacted strict laws aimed at promoting public health.

The struggle for the vote for workers and for women was resisted at every stage, and when universal suffrage was finally won, every effort was made to blunt and control its impact through institutional devices.

Giving external advice and speeches, however well remunerated, also takes time. Doing all three together, it seems to me, would require the talents of…See More

Britain is in chaos and now the Tories may destroy the union - Owen Jones

Tell you what, I haven’t half enjoyed all this stability David Cameron promised at the last election. “Britain faces a simple and inescapable choice,” he tweeted solemnly, “stability and strong government with me, or chaos with Ed Miliband.”Who needs The Walking Dead: if you ever want to scare yourself for kicks, imagine the chronic instability we would now be living through if Miliband had become prime minister. Close call, eh? Thankfully, Britain is now one never-ending rendition of REM’s…See More

That's ok Joe

I am on now

How do I let people know about the Community Ambassador and Community Development Programmes that are being deliverered for people in Essex-?

I can upload course information sheets if you wish or give links for people to find out more-The courses have been planned in response to local demand and are constantly being adapted to meet local needs.  The programme was successfully delivered in South Essex in 2012-13 and feedback from learners confirms that there were a wide range of benefits to support individuals and local communities (geographical and social)

Hi Joe,

Sorry, team communications. Accessing the site to share information and resources with a group at the University of Central Lancashire involved with the work of Paulo Freire.
