As part of the Global Justice Now youth network, we are a student-led democratic social justice organisation working as part of a global movement to challenge the powerful and create a more just and equal world. We run campaigns and educational events to help tackle issues of social justice, specifically challenging the power of corporations in our demand for them to put people-before-profit. The group values each member’s input, and we encourage anybody who has an interest in social justice to get involved.
Currently, our focus is on challenging the corporate control of medicines. Despite the fact that pharmaceutical companies continuously rely on public funding for early stages of development, drug companies are allowed to charge runaway prices, making medicines unaffordable to the people who need it most.
