Blog: Standing in Solidarity with the International Women’s Strike

Oxfam joins in solidarity with the women’s rights organizations and movements leading the strike. They are vital partners in our work and key actors in a global movement for change, empowering women and men to create a future that is secure, just, and free from poverty.

Blog: An amazing display of solidarity #WithSyria!

What an amazing display of support for the #WithSyria campaign for the third anniversary of the Syria crisis – congratulations one and all for a truly moving display of solidarity!

From refugees in Sahrawi camp in Algeria, to Justin Bieber, people literally all over the world stood #WithSyria. It was just fantastic to be able to describe this to some of the kids who gathered with balloons and candles in Za’atari camp last week here in Jordan (photo below, via Muath Freij/Oxfam).

Después de que 250.000 personas se uniesen a la petición para que Coca-Cola, PepsiCo y Associated British Foods —tres grandes empresas de la industria azucarera— garantizasen que el azúcar que utilizan en sus productos no origina acaparamientos de tierras, Coca-Cola se comprometió a adoptar medidas con el fin de detener el acaparamiento de tierras en su cadena de suministro.

After 250,000 people joined the call for Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and Associated British Foods (ABF), three of the biggest players in the sugar industry to make sure the sugar in their food and drinks doesn’t lead to land grabs, Coca-Cola committed to take steps to stop land grabs in their supply chain. Now it’s time to push Pepsi and ABF to do the same.

Ayer encabecé el grupo formado por cientos de personas de todo el mundo que abandonó la 19ª conferencia sobre cambio climático de Naciones Unidas en señal de protesta. Oxfam lleva participando activamente en las negociaciones desde hace ya mucho tiempo, luchando para contribuir a frenar el cambio climático y prestar apoyo a las personas perjudicadas por sus efectos.

Blog: Why I was part of hundreds of people walking out of the UN climate talks

Today I joined hundreds of people from around the world in a walk out of the 19th UN climate talks. Oxfam has been keenly involved in the talks for a long time, fighting to help stop climate change, and to support people affected by it, and every day the urgency for governments to help gets greater.

#Landgrabs campaigners have inspired action around the world

Blog: #Landgrabs campaigners have inspired action around the world

Across the UK last December, people highlighted the problem of land grabs – where big companies buy up land in some of the world’s poorest countries for profit. Often land grabs mean the people who live on the land are evicted. They lose their homes, livelihoods, and their way of growing food.

Blog: A tank in the streets of central London! We need an Arms Trade Treaty now

Last week Oxfam and Amnesty, as part of the Control Arms Coalition, drove a tank around central London, startling passers-by and even getting stopped by the police for a documentation check. While the vehicle was admittedly unorthodox, it was the perfect way to deliver its message – that the world needs a strong, uncompromising treaty to regulate the global weapons trade.
