The sense of loss is great.

The loss of a country I thought I knew, the loss of a continental union, the potential loss of the United Kingdom as it currently exists. Almost six years living and working abroad in South-East Asia has done nothing to lessen the heartbreak of watching my country unravel.

There's a better technology to just 'teaching a man to fish'. In Northern Malawi, women have been teaching men to cook; to allow women more time for harvest, more space to tell their stories, to challenge patriarchy & restructure society. Malnutrition is not just about economics, but about power too. The secret ingredient of the men & women of Northern Malawi? Organizing for gender equality. Watch & be inspired by Raj Patel's TedMed talk.

The negotiation of a binding instrument on Transnational Corporations (TNCs) and Human Rights is an unmatched opportunity to provide access to justice to victims of corporate human rights abuses.
