On Saturday 22 May, Christian Aid, Tearfund, Open Doors and Emerging Culture joined forces for Generate Justice, a day of creative campaigning, worship and teaching; celebrating Pentecost by stamping out injustice!
From Westminster Central Hall, past Downing Street and finishing at Trafalgar Square, more than 150 young Christians marched to key locations, stopping at each to engage with the issues of injustice.Watch video from the day
Among the day's activities was a Christian Aid-staged interactive tug-of-war outside the UK Treasury to highlight Africa’s 'missing millions', telling the story of how corruption, tax dodging and debt have damaged Africa.
The audience booed and cheered as two groups of young people acted out the contest between pirates on one side (representing corruption, greed and secrecy) and Africa’s people on the other.
The tug-of-war finished with a time of prayer and signing a campaign action card calling on the Prime Minister to tackle the root causes of extreme poverty.
Everyone present was also challenged to spread the story using Christian Aid’s youth resource, Sofa Sessions.
The event was attended by US activist Shane Claiborne, who spoke about why now is the time to be involved in campaigning, ensuring our voices are heard and making a stand for justice.
