About

We know we have to push back against corporate lies and manipulation, but how do we do it? In this panel discussion and Q&A held by our partners Global Justice Now, experienced activists share their different approaches – local, global, political and artistic.

As well as a unique chance to hear from Kathrin Hartmann (protagonist of The Green Lie) on using film to raise awareness of alternatives to corporate power, we welcome Dorothy Guerrero (Head of Policy at Global Justice Now) to discuss the push for a UN charter protecting vulnerable nations and the environment from the excesses of corporate power, and Louise Giblin (SEPA UNISON Branch International Officer) to share how local campaigns can apply pressure at a global level.

If you’re planning to attend a screening of The Green Lie, this discussion is the perfect follow-up. If not, don’t worry, it won’t be any less clear. So come along, get involved, and join the conversation!
