CAMPAIGNER STORY: ZARREEN HADDADI AND ANISA ATHER
Zarreen and Anisa from High Wycombe worked on a campaign called Re:balance to restore the balance of the global food system. They held workshops with their local youth group and spoke at iftar gatherings during Ramadan urging people to reduce their food wastage, switch to Fairtrade products and sign Oxfam’s GROW petition calling on world leaders to tackle global food insecurity as a priority. To support their campaign, Zarreen and Anisa also set up a facebook page and created a short video.
“There is no denying that campaigning is tough and it can be frustrating not to see the immediate results of our efforts particularly when images of the East Africa food crisis were dominating in the news. But in order to bring about long-term change, there is no other way than to campaign and there are simple things that all of us can do to make a difference.” Zarreen Haddadi
