Martina Anderson MEP also hosts a major child poverty conference in the Balmoral Hotel, (Blacks Road, Dunmurry, Belfast) on Friday 16 November on behalf of the political group GUE/NGL (European United Left / Nordic Green Left) of which she is a member in the European Parliament.

Announcing details of the morning conference, Martina Anderson said: “The increasing level of child poverty is an issue of great concern across Europe and is being exacerbated by the imposition of draconian austerity measures by governments across the Continent. It is being most acutely felt in every corner of Ireland which has been devastated by the economic collapse.

“The conference will be addressed by Skevi Koutra Koukouma from Cyprus, the present incumbent of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Other confirmed speakers are leading researchers in the field of child poverty such as Michelle Murphy (Social Justice Ireland) and Réka Tunyogi (Eurochild) as well as representatives from other progressive organisations including the Centre for Labour and Social Studies (CLASS).

“Activists in the field from across Europe will be attending.”
