Blog: The first 4 years of Oxfam's GROW Campaign: Keep on growing!

Four years ago this month, Oxfam’s GROW campaign launched with a rallying cry to “fix the broken food system.” In more than 50 countries, people like you have stood up to governments, banks and the world’s biggest brands – and winwon. None of this would have been possible without your support!

Blog: The most popular tax in history? The ‘Million Strong’ campaign for a Robin Hood Tax

From Rome to Berlin, Robin Hood Tax campaigners are coming together this week to present a ‘Million Strong’ petition to European leaders.

Great news arrived from Brussels on Tuesday as European Finance Ministers agreed to allow eleven EU countries to introduce a Financial Transaction tax (FTT). This is a giant leap for the Robin Hood Tax campaign.

Blog: Winners and losers in the Durban climate deal

In the early hours of Sunday morning, governments meeting at the UN climate change conference in Durban, South Africa, set a path towards a new legally binding agreement for all countries to cut emissions. But the deal struck does little to meet the needs of poor people fighting climate change right now, and risks blurring important distinctions between the responsibilities to act of developed and developing countries.

Blog: Can Durban be the bridge to a better future on climate change?

It’s now two years since the frantic campaigning and manic diplomacy that led to the Copenhagen climate change conference, and the blame games that followed its inadequate result.
