PETITION: Make Poverty History
Two years ago, world leaders were given a huge global mandate to make poverty history. Unprecedented public pressure led them to make some big promises - to increase aid, and cancel many poor countries' debts. But they haven't acted urgently enough on the action necessary to eradicate poverty. So in 2007, we are telling the rich countries that The World Can't Wait. They must deliver on their promises and take decisive action against poverty and climate catastrophe now. Take action now to pressure politicians and decision makers to help make poverty history. Come to London on Saturday 2 June to see Prime Minister Tony Blair off to the G8 Summit in Germany with our message ringing in his ears.
