48 hours left to make history

One_banners_014_336x280 Dear President Bush,

Because:

  • ONE billion people around the world live on less than ONE dollar a day;
  • The US government spends less than ONE percent on overcoming global AIDS and poverty;
  • Citizens are uniting as ONE across political and religious divides to support action to overcome the emergency of global AIDS and extreme poverty.

At the G8 leaders meeting on July 6th we urge you to:

  • Help the poorest people of the world fight poverty, AIDS and hunger at a cost equal to just ONE percent more of the US budget on a clear timetable;
  • Cancel 100% of the debts owed by the poorest countries;
  • Reform trade rules so poor countries can earn sustainable incomes.

We urge you to lead an historic deal with other nations to help Africa and the poorest nations overcome global AIDS and extreme poverty. Together as ONE, we can Make Poverty History this July.

President Bush is expected to announce his plan for the G8 summit in two days.

SIGN THE LETTER TO PRESIDENT BUSH to show your support for ending extreme poverty in our lifetime.
