CRY UK is delighted to announce the
‘2014 series’ of walks with Nick Robins through the history of the
East India Company - tracing its London legacy and telling its
extraordinary story of boom and bust, trade and conquest.
now as we have limited seats and invite your friends to join too!
Registration fees will be given to CRY UK as donations. So when you
walk, you ensure progress in the lives of the underprivileged
children in India.
Here is what Nick has to say about the
walk - 'The Company had profound impacts at home, not least its own
stock market bubble and bail-out. It resulted in the conquest of
India, the Boston Tea Party in the Americas and the opium wars with
China. We'll visit the Company's main sites in London, and see how
politicians, painters, playwrights and poets reacted to the greatest
corporation in the world.'

COP 27 was both better and worse than expected, say Prof. Felix Dodds and Chris Spence - originally published with Inter Press Service here. It’s finally over. After the anticipation and build-up to COP27, the biggest climate meeting of the year is now in our rear-view mirror. The crowds of delegates that thronged the Sharm el-Sheikh international convention center for two long weeks have all headed home to recover. Many will be fatigued from long hours and sleepless nights as negotiators tried to seal a deal that would move the world forwards. Did all this hard work pay off?
