Film screening: A Dangerous Game

Written by oxford on October 15, 2014 – 11:55 am -

A Dangerous Game is the follow up to the award-winning You’ve Been Trumped. It’s about how golf is being used as an excuse to build huge luxury resorts that damage the environment of local areas. There will be  a screening at the Phoenix Picturehouse (Walton Street) at 6:15pm on Friday 17th October. There will be a panel discussion afterwards which may be chaired by a member of Oxford WDM (to be confirmed).

Disco Soup

Written by oxford on October 15, 2014 – 11:30 am -

Disco Soup is a fun food-sharing event organised by Abundance Oxford. Head to Bonn Square on Saturday 1st November for free food and live music. So much edible food is regularly thrown away; Abundance Oxford aims to show just how much by rescuing some of this food and giving it away for free. (And it will be tasty!) Join in the chopping, peeling and cooking (and of course eat the end results!) between noon and 5pm. This event is not organised by Oxford WDM.

Meet the miners

Written by oxford on October 15, 2014 – 11:00 am -

Have you ever heard of BHP Billiton? It’s the world’s biggest mining company, it’s the third largest company in the world, and it’s currently wreaking havoc in Colombia. WDM thinks it’s time to give a voice to the people affected by the actions of this huge corporation. So we’re working with London Mining Network (LMN) and other UK allies to organise events where Colombian residents affected by the Cerrejon coal mine can tell their story.

First up: a demonstration outside the BHP Billiton AGM on Thursday 23rd October. That will be in London. More relevant for Oxford people: there will be a meeting on Monday 3rd November where we will hear from one or more people affected by the Cerrejon coal mine, part-owned by BHP Billiton. This meeting will probably be introduced and chaired by someone from Oxford WDM. More details to follow!

One World Fair

Written by oxford on October 8, 2014 – 10:00 am -

Oxford WDM will have a stall at this year’s One World Fair. We’ll be asking people to sign cards protesting against the seriously dodgy TTIP treaty and we’ll also have some materials about the corporate carve-up of Africa (which may or may not include cake). The One World Fair is usually a lovely event and a chance to get started on your (dare we say the word?) Christmas shopping. If you’re there, please do come along, say hello and perhaps sign a postcard.
