Take Back Our World

Freeing ourselves from the power of big business

Where: Charles Wilson Building, Kelvin Way, Glasgow G12 8QQ
When: Saturday 28 January 2017, 9.30-5.30

In this period of rapid political change, there has never been a more important time to get organised to challenge the rich and powerful.

Book your ticket now for this informative and inspiring one day conference organised jointly by Global Justice Now and the Radical Independence Campaign.

Big business has a grip on our lives and society like never before.  Of the 100 wealthiest economic entities in the world, 69 are corporations and only 31 are countries.  As multinationals increasingly dominate areas traditionally considered the domain of the state, it’s time to ask some big questions.  Who really owns and runs Scotland?  What’s the point of independence from Westminster if big business is still in charge?  How are others around the world taking back control from corporations?  

With a great line-up of speakers, this event will feature talks, workshops and debates on how corporations are capturing the government, the media and the global commons, how politicians are aiding this by promoting neoliberal trade deals and privatisation, but also how communities and campaigners from around the world are successfully fighting this takeover.

Take Back Our World will provide activists here in Scotland with the tools for tackling the corporate elite and bringing power back into the hands of the many, where it belongs.
