END THE HUNGER SCANDAL

END THE HUNGER SCANDAL:

Petition to G8 leaders attending the Rome summit:
We urge you to deliver, in full, the $20 billion developing country agriculture and food security package pledged in L´Aquila G8 Summit last July. This money must be additional to existing aid commitments, and priority should be given to investments in sustainable, small-scale farming.

Shining the light on Hunger: Avaaz/ActionAid stunt at the Roman Colosseum on the eve of the World Food Summit

For the first time in human history, the number of people across the world suffering from hunger exceeds 1 billion -- one sixth of the world´s population.

Next week, global leaders will meet at the World Food Summit in Rome to address this growing crisis. But some wealthy countries are threatening to renege on a new $20 billion pledge made earlier this year to boost agriculture in the poorest countries.

Let's act before famines set in. Sign the petition below and tell friends, it will be delivered directly to world leaders and through a spectacular stunt at the Roman Colosseum on the eve of the Summit.
