ERG highlights poverty at its 6th Independent Civil Society event
‘The success of the event has continued to grow, year upon year, with ever more Civil Society groups of different ilk and colour participating. Similar interest from politicians and political parties has also been evident, with for instance, last year, the Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, addressing the event, and this year the Leader of the Gibraltar Social Democrats, Dr. Keith Azopardi, QC, similarly providing the audience the opportunity to listen to his thoughts, as we approach new General Elections. Following the speech, there will also be a roving mike Q&A session for members of the audience to ask questions directly.
‘The National Officer of Unite the Union, Stuart Davies, will also be making a presentation in line with the event’s theme of “faces of poverty”. Unite will also participate with an exhibition of trade union history in Gibraltar.
‘We also look forward to announcing the results of our online Poll this year on the question of ‘Who is fit to govern Gibraltar?’
