Thanks to all who joined us at the OMI Centre in Wistaston, near Crewe, for our March meeting. Kenya, with its new AEFJN group, was the focus for our work on Trade, Climate Change, Land Grabbing and Tax Evasion. Our thanks, too, to Phil Teece of Oxfam who gave a great talk and enlightened us about some of the crises facing Kenya. We look forward to developing closer links with the Kenyan Antenna.

FOR YOUR DIARY: The autumn networking days will be Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 10th October, 2018, also at Wistaston.

Kenya: new AEFJN Antenna

A new AEFJN antenna was launched in Nairobi on February 16, 2018. The launch was preceded by a two-day workshop on Advocacy and AEFJN itself. The antenna is anchored by the Conferences of Major Superiors of Kenya. Previously, the two conferences (of male & female religious congregations) worked independently of each other but AEFJN is now a common voice for them both on matters of economic justice.

A structure to coordinate the antenna’s activities for the next year has been set up. The antenna has chosen the theme of Tax Evasion/Money Laundering for their advocacy activities and will soon be meeting to develop their Plan of Action. The Secretariat is grateful to the UK antenna and the Executive for their support in setting up the new antenna. The UK antenna has further committed itself to working closely with the Kenyan antenna.
