James Sadri is a campaigner and organiser with a background in the Middle East and a passion for global justice. Based in Beirut, James is on a break from his job as Head of Mobilisation at Greenpeace where he leads a team responsible for engaging millions of people on issues like climate change and deforestation. Most recently he lead the digital communications for the successful global effort to free the “Arctic 30”.
James previously spent two years living in Yarmouk camp and other parts of Damascus learning Arabic and working on a TV documentary series for the BBC called “Syrian School”. James’ proudest grassroots campaign was getting people in Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Ghana to vote in the UK elections to protest the lack of real democracy in today’s globalised world. The concept has been taken on by others and most recently saw Palestinians voting in Israeli elections.
