The PowerPoint presentations of our “Social death - the impact of austerity and poverty” seminar on 1st May
The seminar in the Houses of Parliament on the 1st May 2019 was chaired by Debbie Abrahams MP the Chair of APPG on Health in all Policies
We have now run four seminars – on land, housing, health inequality and social death respectively – with speakers providing the highest-quality information available in the UK.
Land is the connecting link. It is a gift of nature intended for the provision of shelter, food, fuel, water, clothes, health and wellbeing for ALL.
With the young climate protesters, we say, ‘There is no planet B.’
Dr Faiza Shaheen spoke about the gender, racial and class impacts of austerity and poverty.

The good health and wellbeing of every UK citizen in or out of work must now become a national priority
A decent social security system, built on moral principles shown on the Fabian Society website, would allow people to flourish and reverse the current structural violence and social murder.
There are moral principles honoured for millennia which have been adopted by both religious and secular leaders. Peace, shalom and salaam have the same root.
