Global Justice Edinburgh

Global Justice Edinburgh are the Edinburgh group of Global Justice Now – a democratic social justice organisation working as part of a global movement to challenge the powerful and create a more just and equal world. They believe that a better world is possible: a world where our resources and decisions about how they’re used lie in the hands of the many, not the few; a world where resources are available to all, not just to those who can afford them.

GJN mobilise people in the UK for change, and act in solidarity with those fighting injustice, particularly in the global south.
