Connections UnitingCare - Standing Up and Taking Action On Poverty sign now

Connections UnitingCare is dedicated to the eradication of poverty on a local, national and international level. This year, as part of Anti-Poverty Week and in line with our Anti-Poverty Awards, we are supporting the Stand Up Take Action Against Poverty movement.

THE PLEGDE:

We are standing now with millions around the world on this symbolic day, he International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, to show our commitment to the fight against extreme poverty and inequality. We are standing because we refuse to accept more excuses in a world where 50,000 people die every day as a result of extreme poverty and the gap between rich and poor is getting wider.

We are standing because we want our leaders to honour their promises to meet the Millennium Development Goals - and we ask them to exceed these goals.

We join in solidarity with people from hundreds of countries to say:

To the leaders of the wealthy countries - we urge you to keep your promises on poverty - debt cancellation, more and better aid, trade justice and gender quality. We urge you to commit yourselves to tackling climate change - to reach a fair and equitable global agreement that drastically reduces the impacts of climate change on the poorest of the world.

To the leaders of poorer countries - make it your first responsibility to save the lives of your poorest citizens. We ask you to tackle inequality, to be accountable to your people, to govern fairly and justly, to fight corruption and to fulfil human rights.

We are asking not for charity but for justice. We are millions of voices standing in solidarity to say, no more excuses - end poverty now.
