 From 1pm to 6pm; organised by WDM and Leeds Uni... from the website:
This year WDM’s Whose Rules Rule? conference will explore activism past, 
present and future – by celebrating and learning from global justice 
campaigns. Speakers include Ngugi wa Thiong'o, George Monbiot, Mohau 
Pheko and Esther Stanford.

2007 is the bicentenary of the parliamentary abolition of the 
transatlantic slave trade. It’s an opportunity to reflect on our past 
and learn lessons for the present and the future. Two hundred years of 
campaigning and resistance – and two hundred years of ongoing global 

We will explore the lessons to be learned from the struggle to end the 
slave trade. We will share our vision of how today’s inequality is built 
on past abuses of power. And we will celebrate the unsung heroes of the 
fight against historical and contemporary injustice.
