Every single day, 30,000 children are dying as a result of extreme poverty. Back in 2001 the government of the eight wealthiest nations on the planet said that they were going to do something about it - in what was seen as a breakthrough, they promised to halve world poverty by 2015. Four years later these targets are way off being met. With the UK hosting the G8 gathering of powerful world leaders in July, as well as holding the presidency of the European Union for the second half of the year, 2005 offers a truly exceptional set of opportunities for the UK to take a lead internationally and say that enough is enough. Make Poverty History is a growing coalition of more than 300 charities, campaigns, trade unions, faith groups and other organisations in partnership with the Global Call to Action Against Poverty with the following three aims: Trade Justice. Drop the Debt. More and Better Aid. Vote for Trade Justice is the latest and biggest stage of the campaign being run by member organisations of the Trade Justice Movement. Trade Justice is about much more than buying the right coffee at the supermarket; it's about the world's rich countries allowing the world's poor countries to do business so that trading can be a way out of poverty. Vote for Trade Justice is a call on the British Government to stop the inequality currently existing in international trade. More than 150,000 people in the UK have already shown their support and today, Robbie is supporting the campaign by lending his name to an email being sent out to everyone who has signed up to the Make Poverty History website asking them to vote too. You can find out more about Make Poverty History and support the campaign by voting right now: www.makepovertyhistory.org
