Dear Hornsey and Wood Green Constituents,
Oxfam wants to draw attention to the shocking problem of land grabs - this is where companies or foreign governments buy up land in developing countries without any consultation and the local people live and farm the land get unfairly and sometimes violently evicted.
At the G8 Nick Clegg is leading on the land discussions so we have a very real opportunity to get something done about this unethical practice.
(for more information on this campaign visit: http://www.oxfam.org.uk/get-involved/campaign-with-us/our-campaigns...)
We are organising a land grab auction stunt where a group of activists stages a land auction in Muswell Hill. Lynne Featherstone MP will be there to talk about the issue - don't miss your opportunity to talk to her - and to get a few pictures!
Campaign stunts are always fun - it's an opportunity to do something unusual and to act for a good cause + to meet other people interested in poverty issues and international development. Come along and see what it's like, you might love it!
The event will take place on June 7th at 6.45pm outside Barclays, on the corner between Muswell Hill Broadway and Queen's Avenue - see the map.
Please let me know if you'd like to participate and I'll send you more details in due course. We're especially keen to have Lynne's constituents with us! If you live in Wood Green, Crouch End, Muswell Hill, Hornsey and neighbouring areas, definitely get in touch :)
