2014 Matters event: Poverty, Power and Inequality in a Changing World

This afternoon of film and discussion will consider how Scotland could combat inequality and poverty globally in 2014 and beyond.
 
It will open with a special screening of documentary ‘A River Changes Course’, presented by the Take One Action Film Festival, followed by our 2014 Matters discussion with civil society and political contributors.
 
Speakers at the debate will include: Anas Sarwar MP, deputy leader of the Scottish Labour Party, chief co-ordinator of Labour's 2014 Scottish independence referendum campaign and Polly Jones, head of campaigns and policy at the World Development Movement. The event will be chaired by Alex Renton, award-winning journalist, who writes for the Guardian, Observer and Times, specialising in poverty and development.
