Posted:this is still a direct link to the pm do you really think that the make poverty history people would want us to be that short sighted about this !
"oh well it was last week, so i'll just not have my say ?"
come on guys, every letter counts !
if enough constituents write to their mo about acertain issue then he is bound by law to bring it up in parliment.
lets not be apathetic, i'm sure we all have something that we would like to say to mr.blair, and i don't mean just to send him a sh***y email about what a c**t he has been, but to express your personal opinion about what is happening with our government and our world, after all this is the man that was chosen by the public to represnt you !
I don't know, just thought that it was quite unique and worth supporting, seeing as alot of people on this site are of an alternative/ liberal view point and this is an oppourtunity to express your views directly to your prime minister, backed by a recgognized organisation ! ( god i don't like all these long difficult word s smile !! )
anyway just thoughtthat people might have something to say but if you don't, well thats for you isn't it!
I sent an email, non-abusive just stating what i as one of mr.blairs constituents would like to say to him and god knows that thisis probably the only way that i can !
peace and love people,
and have your say !
why not it's simply the click of a button !
ohand you can erase/edit the existing text in the pre-formed message.

Email blair (don't smash up McD's... we don't need the publicity!!).
Make your mark... but don't stop there.

Keep the sentiment going through every aspect of your life too... in the choices you make, the products you buy and how you deal with the people you meet. Think about the things that preceeded your actions, and the consequences of it.

The one thing I took away from being dragged to church every sunday morning for 13 years was... do onto others as you would have them do onto you.

One love, as yer man said.

TRADE JUSTICE. DROP THE DEBT. MORE & BETTER AID.



Today, the gap between the worlds rich and poor is wider than ever. Global injustices such as poverty, AIDS, malnutrition, conflict and illiteracy remain rife.



Despite the promises of world leaders, at our present sluggish rate of progress the world will fail dismally to reach internationally agreed targets to halve global poverty by 2015.



World poverty is sustained not by chance or nature, but by a combination of factors: injustice in global trade; the huge burden of debt; insufficient and ineffective aid. Each of these is exacerbated by inappropriate economic policies imposed by rich countries.



But it doesnt have to be this way. These factors are determined by human decisions.



2005 offers an exceptional series of opportunities for the UK to take a lead internationally, to start turning things around. Next year, as the UK hosts the annual G8 gathering of powerful world leaders and heads up the European Union (EU), the UK Government will be a particularly influential player on the world stage.



A sea change is needed. By mobilising popular support across a unique string of events and actions, we will press our own government to compel rich countries to fulfil their obligations and promises to help eradicate poverty, and to rethink some long-held assumptions.



MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY urges the government and international decision makers to rise to the challenge of 2005. We are calling for urgent and meaningful policy change on three critical and inextricably linked areas: trade, debt and aid.



1. Trade justice



Fight for rules that ensure governments, particularly in poor countries, can choose the best solutions to end poverty and protect the environment. These will not always be free trade policies.



End export subsidies that damage the livelihoods of poor rural communities around the world.



Make laws that stop big business profiting at the expense of people and the environment.



The rules of international trade are stacked in favour of the most powerful countries and their businesses. On the one hand these rules allow rich countries to pay their farmers and companies subsidies to export food destroying the livelihoods of poor farmers. On the other, poverty eradication, human rights and environmental protection come a poor second to the goal of eliminating trade barriers.



We need trade justice not free trade. This means the EU single-handedly putting an end to its damaging agricultural export subsidies now; it means ensuring poor countries can feed their people by protecting their own farmers and staple crops; it means ensuring governments can effectively regulate water companies by keeping water out of world trade rules; and it means ensuring trade rules do not undermine core labour standards.



We need to stop the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) forcing poor countries to open their markets to trade with rich countries, which has proved so disastrous over the past 20 years; the EU must drop its demand that former European colonies open their markets and give more rights to big companies; we need to regulate companies making them accountable for their social and environmental impact both here and abroad; and we must ensure that countries are able to regulate foreign investment in a way that best suits their own needs.



2. Drop the debt



The unpayable debts of the worlds poorest countries should be cancelled in full, by fair and transparent means.



Despite grand statements from world leaders, the debt crisis is far from over. Rich countries have not delivered on the promise they made more than six years ago to cancel unpayable poor country debts. As a result, many countries still have to spend more on debt repayments than on meeting the needs of their people.



Rich countries and the institutions they control must act now to cancel all the unpayable debts of the poorest countries. They should not do this by depriving poor countries of new aid, but by digging into their pockets and providing new money.



The task of calculating how much debt should be cancelled must no longer be left to creditors concerned mainly with minimising their own costs. Instead, we need a fair and transparent international process to make sure that human needs take priority over debt repayments.



International institutions like the IMF and World Bank must stop asking poor countries to jump through hoops in order to qualify for debt relief. Poor countries should no longer have to privatise basic services or liberalise economies as a condition for getting the debt relief they so desperately need.



And to avoid another debt crisis hard on the heels of the first, poor countries need to be given more grants, rather than seeing their debt burden piled even higher with yet more loans.



3. More and better aid



Donors must now deliver at least $50 billion more in aid and set a binding timetable for spending 0.7% of national income on aid. Aid must also be made to work more effectively for poor people.



Poverty will not be eradicated without an immediate and major increase in international aid. Rich countries have promised to provide the extra money needed to meet internationally agreed poverty reduction targets. This amounts to at least $50 billion per year, according to official estimates, and must be delivered now.



Rich countries have also promised to provide 0.7% of their national income in aid and they must now make good on their commitment by setting a binding timetable to reach this target.



However, without far-reaching changes in how aid is delivered, it wont achieve maximum benefits. Two key areas of reform are needed.



First, aid needs to focus better on poor peoples needs. This means more aid being spent on areas such as basic healthcare and education. Aid should no longer be tied to goods and services from the donor, so ensuring that more money is spent in the poorest countries. And the World Bank and the IMF must become fully democratic in order for poor peoples concerns to be heard.



Second, aid should support poor countries and communities own plans and paths out of poverty. Aid should therefore no longer be conditional on recipients promising economic change like privatising or deregulating their services, cutting health and education spending, or opening up their markets: these are unfair practices that have never been proven to reduce poverty. And aid needs to be made predictable, so that poor countries can plan effectively and take control of their own budgets in the fight against poverty.



MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY is a unique UK alliance of charities, trade unions, campaigning groups and celebrities who are mobilising around key opportunities in 2005 to drive forward the struggle against poverty and injustice.

Just incase... email Peter Mandelson



In December in Hong Kong the World Trade Organisation meets. When they do we have to demand that unfair trade rules are changed so that people in extreme poverty have a chance to build themselves a future.



The crucial negotiations are happening right now. Peter Mandelson, the former British MP who is now the European Trade Commissioner. The talks are not going well - in fact they're in pretty desperate straits - and there's a real chance they will not result in a deal that will help make poverty history. A big reason why that might not happen is because Europe's position in the talks is blocking the deal poor people need. We cannot let this happen without one last push.



Peter Mandelson needs to know that we want him to do everything he can and more in the interests of the poor.



Please email him right now.
