Coalition for Economic Justice < www.C4EJ.com > was established November 2008 when 12 rather different organisations (see below) agreed to combine their efforts in striving to convince influential UK persons (journalists, academics, politicians, civil servants, and others) of the virtues of land-value taxation; meaning public collection of values created by nature and by the community. These values are due to various advantages human beings can have of locations when they produce what they need for their living and comfort and when they set up their homes or business.
What initiated the establishment of CEJ was the economic crises that in 2008 began pestering most civilised societies. Since its inauguration the CEJ has made important achievements; established contacts to politicians and civil servants; and raised (together with others) awareness among journalists and academics of the need for LVT.
When appropriate, CEJ calls a Steering Group meeting of representatives from the participating organisations who discuss and agree strategies, plan activities, and define and accept tasks. Sub committees are working between Steering Group meetings.
In order to keep members of the participating organisations updated about CEJ progresses, achievements and new ideas the CEJ calls occasionally for a General CEJ Meeting, such as the above mentioned.

Organised by the Coalition for Economic Justice.
What are the key economic issues of the day?
And what are the practical policy outcomes we need?
Come and take part if you wish to learn or feel you can contribute to the debate.
The Taxation system;
Financial services and Banking;
Money supply and Interest rates.
The present economic system is dysfunctional in all these fields. The result is exploitation of the population. We need a society which embraces everyone.
As part of the second James Quilligan seminar series, we aim to hold full discussion on these issues with a view to reaching possible solutions that government could and should apply. Excellent leaders for each session but designed mainly for contributions from the floor. A detailed report containing practical policies that serve society for the common good will be produced for wide circulation helping to achieve the change we need.
Course materials (which will be handed out at the session on Wednesday 24th October) can be found in the attached Word documents further below on this webpage.
