Going Underground: Inequality at Davos 2015, Peace One Day, & Trident protests (E164)


Published on Jan 21, 2015

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on glowing global inequality in the shadow of the World Economic Forum happening at Davos this week. Nick Dearden of Global Justice Now warns that it perpetuates the ‘propaghanda’ that the system benefits all of us, and but from free trade agreements to philanthropy, it benefits the richest. Jeremy Gilley, founder of Peace One Day, talks about his battle for peace across the world, talking to those profiting from the arms trade to the Taliban as he tries to bring anyone he feels can make a difference to the negotiating table. With protests planned against Trident this weekend, we ask if renewal could breach the Non-Proliferation Treaty. As Cameron commits to full employment for Britain, we take a look at the plight of the 3 million underemployed today. And one week after Japan announces its biggest ever defence budget, their foreign minister meets with defence secretary Michael Fallon in London.
