Ealing Quakers Economic Justice Group (EQEJG) is a group of Quakers who are deeply concerned about the impact of austerity, both locally and nationally. Their aim is to enable members of the public in the borough of Ealing, of all faiths and none, to become better informed about the facts. The group hopes those wishing to address the effects of austerity will join together to undertake considered and concerted action.
At the beginning of 2016 EQEJG began working collaboratively with My Fair London, West London Compass and Ealing Transition, and in September 2016 the remit of EQEJG was broadened to include climate justice, sustainability and peace.
Summary of the programme: 2014 - 2016
In early 2014 a series of public events, including panel discussions and films, was held. A second series ran from September 2014 until March 2015, and a third series during autumn 2015 included a performance by Journeymen Theatre of Red Flag over Bermondsey, a play about Ada Salter, socialist, pacifist, first Labour woman mayor; and a discussion led by Rachel Berger on the topic ‘Fix the Planet, Fix Inequality’. Details of the January to April 2016 programme can be found here.
