OUR ACTIONS

We are a group of mothers heart broken and determined to bring change. The situation of food insecurity is escalating both in the UK and globally and we know as mothers we have a powerful voice which needs to be heard. Together with unwavering determination, let's create a world where no child goes hungry. 



MOTHERS HUNGER STRIKE

WE ARE GOING ON HUNGER STRIKE | MARCH 10th-14th | OUTSIDE PARLIAMENT 


Joining Mother's Manifesto means joining a group of compassionate, like-minded people who want to see an end to suffering. We are a group of mother's who each have expertise and life experience in motherhood, food insecurity and health. e have people who run food banks, work as activists, are full time mothers, Doctors and NGO organisers, as well as support members who help with our messaging and logistics. 

During our hunger strike our group will be together, with wellbeing and medical support throughout every step of the action. We have a free accommodation option where we will all stay together for the 5 days. If you are local to London and would prefer to join us daily that is also very welcome. We also welcome mother's who may only wish to strike for a number of days out of the 5.

We are also in need of further support from volunteers, for general logistics, as well as any communications and media support that can help get our message out there! Please sign our contact sheet to find out more and connect with our group directly. Thank you x

UPCOMING ACTIONS
MOTHERS MANIFESTO RETURN TO PARLIAMENT

DURING OUR HUNGER STRIKE WE WILL BE SPEAKING WITH MPs CANDIDATES ABOUT OUR DEMANDS IN PARLIAMENT.

JOIN US AND LEARN MORE 

1. NO CHILD IN THE UK TO GO HUNGRY

Free school meals for all children in state schools and the implementation of a Universal Credit which guarantees life's essentials.


2. A LOOP-HOLE FREE WINDFALL TAX ON FOSSIL FUEL COMPANIES EXCESSIVE PROFITS 

The climate crisis, which is being driven by fossil fuels, is directly causing an escalation in food insecurity. Fossil fuel companies presently receive 91.4% tax relief (90p in every £1) when reinvesting into UK energy, this includes expansion and development of fossil fuel sites. Essentially taking our money to steal our future!


OUR HEARTS

Throughout our hunger strikes and time spent working together at food banks and with local community centres, we have been making a huge collection of hand made hearts. These hand stitched hearts are easy to make and allow us to each take a moment to think of a child close to our hearts. We want to show the compassion and connection that drives us to fight for those who are needlessly suffering. We all just want to know that our children and loved ones are safe and happy; that is our human right. 

Create a heart and share your support for the campaign 

Here's how to make one!

MOTHERS MANIFESTO: 24hr Hunger Strike

Our group of Mother's took on another hunger strike outside of Westminster to show solidarity with mother's, children and families struggling in the UK and globally to find basic essentials for life. We joined forces with the Crossroads Women's Centre who stood with us. This is not an isolated issue. Climate change, the cost of living crisis, and ongoing inequality around the world contributes to the starvation and death of children and their parents. 







PREVIOUS ACTIONS

6 DAY MOTHERS HUNGER STRIKE

Our campaign started with a group of dedicated mothers who committed themselves to a 6 day hunger strike, starting on Mother's Day 2023. Our aim is to repeat this strike on a bigger scale for Mother's Day 2024. We will not sit still while mothers and children starve in the 6th biggest economy in the world. While families struggle to survive against their human rights and global corporations take record profits. 

You can join our campaign, whether hunger striking or supporting our mother's in their efforts to connect communities, raise awareness and demand immediate action to stop the preventable food insecurity  crisis.
