Mass Lobby for Trade Justice – Wednesday 2 November
Preparations are really gearing up for the only mass mobilisation organisedfor MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY and trade justice campaigners in the second half of the year, with just over a month to go until the Mass Lobby for Trade Justice on Wednesday 2 November.
Publicity materials (A5 flyers and A3 and A4 posters) for the event are nowavailable; if you would like to distribute these to your supporters, pleaseemail Vicky Tongue, TJM Campaign Assistant at vicky@tjm.org.uk. Allparticipants are asked to register their attendance in advance, and to ordera lobby pack, which will shortly be available to download fromwww.tjm.org.uk, or in print form by emailing vicky@tjm.org.uk. There is anonline registration form on the TJM and MPH websites athttp://www.makepovertyhistory.org/mph/campaign.do?code=lob - please linkthrough to this from your website as it is important we get a good idea ofhow many people will be attending in advance of the day. The transportnoticeboard for coaches to the lobby is now live on the TJM website atwww.tjm.org.uk/transport.
There is a need for a significant number of staff and stewards to help out on the day. It would be a huge help if all organisations could find as many volunteers as possible from their staff and supporters. Duties include outdoor stewarding, giving information, helping with managing the queue or assistingMPs, and will be in two 4-hour shifts. Please email Sirius Gibson at Oxfam(sgibson@oxfam.org.uk) with any questions and to register as a steward.
Parliamentary work ahead of the lobby is also in full swing - there willshortly be a mailing encouraging all MPs to take action on our demands andget involved in the mass lobby (to be followed by a briefing meeting in lateOctober). An Early Day Motion will also be tabled on 10 October for MPs to sign.
