The Queen & The Struggle

Home » News » The Queen & The Struggle

Given the weekend's revelations about offshore investments by the Queen and the wealthy elite, last week's talk on the topic by author Rev. David Haslam was timely. Having read his book A Luta Continua (The Struggle Continues), the Good Faith Book Club invited David to speak at Stoke Mandeville Church last Tuesday evening.
With a lifetime's ministry of fighting injustice and inequality, David spoke of his motivation based on what he considers the radical teachings of Jesus and inspirational writings of several people. Not least among these was Martin Luther and the evening's talk coincided with the 500th anniversary of Luther's '95 theses' and the start of the Protestant Reformation.
David's campaign battles have been about apartheid, the environment, racism and caste discrimination, the corporate abuse of transnational power and fairer taxation. He brought along several leaflets from the Methodist Tax Justice Network. Several of these can be downloaded by clicking here. As Christians, David urged us all to continue this struggle for social justice in all its forms. He certainly leads by example!
