Your voice against poverty

Sign here MOVEMENT AGAINST POVERTY


Give your voice against poverty, and remind your Leader and the G8 to act on the promises they have made to help the worlds poorest people.

In 2000 your Government, along with all other UN countries, committed to halving extreme poverty by 2015. In 2005 G8 leaders made some significant commitments on poverty in Gleneagles. To end poverty, the G8 must keep their promises, and give further commitments to eradicate extreme poverty where existing promises have fallen short.

This year is a great opportunity for the German Government to show leadership on poverty eradication, and for all G8 leaders to take real action to life millions out of poverty.

When the G8 hear our voices, they must act. Give your voice against poverty by sending an email to your Leader and to Chancellor Angela Merkel who leads the G8 in this crucial year.


Message to leaders

Attn: Mr. Putin, President of the Russian Federation
Cc: G8 leaders

I am writing to you as concerned citizen of your country, to ask that you make the G8 Summit this year really count for the worlds poorest people. All G8 leaders have a responsibility to keep your promises, and do more to end poverty.

Keep your word! Make the promises of more and better aid, debt relief and trade justice into concrete change that will lift millions out of poverty. You can make 2007 a decisive year in the fight against poverty.

Millions of people have already pledged their support as part of the Global Call to Action against Poverty. Keep this crucial issue at the heart of your work in the G8. I am sending you my voice against poverty.
