He is at the British Empire and Commonwealth museum in Bristol, standing beneath a giant image of his own head in silhouette, and 35 minutes in, he is in full flow. “Here we are today, demanding something our forefathers never did – equal protection under the law. We as Africans are creditors, not debtors. Our energies fuelled the industrial revolution. We fought and died in World War One and World War Two,” he says.
On Monday, British campaigners launched Equanomics UK, designed to be a mass-membership organisation that will focus on wage inequalities, international trade policies and the impact of poverty on education, health, employment and housing. Jackson has come to lend a hand, but beyond that he intends Equanomics to form part of a nexus encompassing Push and its South African sister organisation.
