“Stand Up” Against Poverty Events Will Occur Across the Globe on September 17th-19th, 2010

Immediate Release – September 14, 2010

CITIZENS’ VOICES AGAINST POVERTY WILL CRESCENDO IN NOISES HEARD AROUND THE WORLD AS HEADS OF STATE TRAVEL TO UN SUMMIT:

Local Groups Host “Stand Up” Events Whereby Citizens Will Make their Expectations – that Governments Achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – Too Loud to Ignore at “Stand Up” Events Across the Globe on September 17th-19th.

On September 17th -19th, people across the globe will turn up the volume on their call for heads of state gathering at the United Nations on September 20th-22nd to demonstrate leadership in order to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Citizens will gather at events (see local listing below) across continents to amplify  their support for the eight Millennium Development Goals –  a set of targets to eradicate extreme poverty and its root causes by 2015 that marks its tenth anniversary this week. They will be singing, chanting, blowing whistles, playing drums, blowing vuvuzelas, banging pots and pans and setting off alarm clocks. The sounds of these noises emanating from villages, towns and cities around the world as part of the three day mobilization “Stand Up, Take Action, Make Noise for the Millennium Development Goals  (MDGs)” will make citizens’ commitments to track and support their countries’ achievement of the  Millennium Development Goals visible, vocal and impossible to ignore.

AHEAD OF G-8, NEW ANALYSIS REVEALS AFRICAN COUNTRIES TOP LIST OF 20 COUNTRIES MAKING MOST OVERALL PROGRESS ON MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS Report by the Overseas Development Institute and UN Millennium Campaign Reveals Many of the Poorest Countries are Making Most Progress on Millennium Development Goals

June 22, 2010 — As G-8 and G-20 leaders prepare to gather in Canada, new analysis issued by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and the United Nations Millennium Campaign finds that, in absolute terms, many of the world’s poorest countries are making the most overall progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – the set of promises world leaders made to significantly reduce extreme poverty, illiteracy and disease by 2015. Particularly relevant for G-8 countries are the findings which underline the importance of open trade and effective and timely aid in driving this success. For poor countries, political leadership, accountability and adequate budgetary allocations for the Goals are cited as key criteria to drive sustained progress.
