“End the Age of Greed” – Solutions from The Other Mountains
Each year in January, members of the Fight Inequality Alliance mobilise across the world to highlight the crisis of inequality. We demonstrate that people are organising and demanding an end to the age of greed and putting forward their solutions for a more equal society. Knowing that people around the world are mobilising for the same cause at the same time helps inspire and embolden people to organise. Our week of action happens as the global 1% meet at the World Economic Forum on the exclusive Swiss mountain resort of Davos. Our mobilisations are a counterpoint to elite discussions on inequality – a huge show of people power to demonstrate the real solutions will come from people on the frontlines of inequality around the world.
For inspiration, watch the highlights video from January 2019’s week of action, featuring the song Hatutakoma, written for the alliance by Kenyan hip hop star Juliani. See also media coverage, like this op ed, this feature piece and this piece.
