At this year's The World Transformed festival, I caught up with poet, activist and SOAS lecturer Rafeef Ziadah.

She spoke to us about immigration policy, her vision of an economy for the many, and how a progressive movement can take power, in part 3/6 of our exclusive TWT series.

Live discussion: Why is everyone taking the government to court?

There's a pandemic on – so why are openDemocracy, Foxglove and others challenging the British government's health contracts in court? Join us for the inside story on how we're going to extraordinary lengths to force the government to reveal what they're doing with public money and citizens' health records.

Join us for this free event on 4 March at 5pm UK time/12pm EST.

Hear from:

Cori Crider Lawyer Investigator and co-founder of Foxglove, a non-profit that seeks to make the use of technology fair for everyone

Caroline Molloy Editor ourNHS and openDemocracyUK
