Africa has some of the richest natural resources in the world. Yet the majority of its people have been impoverished by decades of policies imposed by international finance institutions and northern governments. These policies have enabled corporations to accumulate vast profits while dispossessing the people and the continent of its riches, often subsidised by public funds in the form of 'aid'.
But from Egypt to Gabon, South Africa to Tunisia, African people have been resisting. This conference will discuss their struggle, the alternatives they're proposing and opportunities for solidarity actions with the oppressed and exploited.
11am-6pm, Wesley Memorial Methodist Church,
