On 19 June, Save the Children joined with over 12,000 people in a mass lobby at the British Parliament on international trade.
The lobby was organised by the Trade Justice Movement, a broad coalition of organisations, of which Save the Children is a founder member. In what was the world's biggest mass lobby of politicians on trade, people descended on Parliament to talk to their MPs about how developing countries are being ripped off by unfair trade rules.
Rock band Radiohead, TV comedian Rob Newman and many other big names will join more than 10,000 people from across the UK at the largest ever mass lobby of parliament on 19 June 2002. They will line up to meet their MPs, forming a giant queue which is expected to stretch down Millbank, over Lambeth Bridge and along the south bank of the Thames.They are coming to meet their MPs and press for greater justice in global trade. The Lobby will send a clear message that British voters want the rules on international trade rewritten to favour the world's poorest communities and safeguard the environment.The lobby is organised by the Trade Justice Movement (TJM), a new grouping of 50 charities, aid agencies and campaigning groups calling for fundamental changes in the rules and institutions governing international trade.
