The Navatas city cemetery in Manila is at the centre of a unique community. Nearly 2000 families have made their homes on, around and inside its walls, creating jobs, homes and a way of life. But now the residents are having to fight for their future.
“When they tear down the trees and strip the land, they tear down our people and strip away their lives.”
Beyond the Screen
The Scottish Youth Parliament is the democratically elected voice of Scotland’s young people. We are a young people’s parliament, designed by young people and led by young people for the benefit of young people. We are committed to ensuring young people are heard by the decision makers of Scotland and we are determined to campaign on the issues which matter most to Scotland’s young people.
Set up after the Make Poverty History march in Edinburgh during the 2005 G20 meeting, the festival aims to
1. raise the profile of international justice and development issues;
2. provide an annual ‘shop window’ to the public; and
3. be a platform for co-operation and debate for the world justice movement in Edinburgh.
It puts together the programme of the festival which in 2014 is from 04 – 11 October, organising some key events, and co-ordinating all the other events which are put on by supporting organisations
