Hundreds take on Dodgy Dealers at Glastonbury
This was the ninth year that the bus has hosted a busy team of JDC volunteers who spend Glastonbury getting the word out about our campaigns.
2011 was another fantastic year. This year we were talking to festivalgoers about our Dodgy Deals Campaign which calls for the reform of the government’s shady Export Credits Guarantee Department (ECGD) - responsible for over 90% of the debt still owed to the UK by developing countries.
Even the relentless sticky mud couldn’t stop us and around 1500 Glastonbury-goers wrote to their MPs asking them to 'End Dodgy Deals now!'.
We are very grateful to the performers who kindly donated their time and trudged through the mud to support JDC by playing outside the bus in very challenging conditions! For a full list of bands who played see here. Many thanks to everyone that gave their time and energy to help out!
