    Pressure Groups

    Can any one name me any recent pressure groups that have done anything significant in the past 2-3 months?

    also any recent insider pressure groups? (groups that work with goverment)

    Basically got my politics AS module tomorrow ans was reading past examiner's reports the kept talking about the top candidates give reference ti very recent events, examples ive already got are

    The Stop the War coalition did not stop the war, but it may have made future wars more difficult

    Make Poverty History did not make poverty history, but it may have moved debt relief and other issues further up the agenda.

    I just learnt today that Greenpeace are not a insider group and if i out that inn my exam i wont get no marks.
    NSPCC is though.

    Fathers for justice extreme action to get their point across (outsider)
