Large-scale march calls for justice in world trade system

The Trade Justice Movement, a consortium of charities, aid agencies and campaign groups, will today mount what it hopes will be the largest lobby of Parliament to call for justice in global trade.

More than 10,000 people are expected to converge on Westminster today (19 June) to ask their elected representatives to press for justice in global trade agreements in advance of an international summit of EU heads of state in Spain next week.

The Trade Justice Movement has secured the support of celebrities including the rock group Radiohead.

"We're hoping that the march will really push the issue to the foreground, and all organisations involved have been working tirelessly to support the campaign,

said a spokesperson for Traidcraft. "It's vital that we all work together to galvanise enough support to get our message across."

Organisations involved in the movement include Christian Aid, Friends of the Earth and Oxfam.
