Jubilee Debt Campaign Birmingham

The Opening of a New Kind of Campaigning

Posted on: March 31, 2009

The recent  March through London  brought together campaigners on a range of issues all united in asking for all  G20 governments to “Put People First”.poster

A coach load of JDC supporters went from Birmingham to add their voices with 35000 others.

I agree with Glen Tarman who described the day as the “start of an exciting alliance”. Never have so many unions, charities, faithgroups and others taken part together in a demonstration.

It was also an all age  event. One of the inspiring sights for me was  to  see three generations of the same family taking part Tony Dumper former Bishop of Dudley was stepping out along side his son and grand daughter. I was amused to see my son twittering ” marching on Downing street with mum and dad” It was  certainly a family friendly day not the  mob predicted by the media.mum-dad
