Stand up against poverty

I got this mail yesterday: Dear Heidi, The Global Month of Action, ‘Stand Up Against Poverty’, got off to a great start with events taking place around the world. Campaigners in Singapore, Liberia, Indonesia, Belgium, Scotland and many other countries started the Month of Action with a bang and took action to protest against the damaging effects of World Bank and IMF policies on developing countries. There are many more events and activities to come until the month of action ends on 17 October, World Poverty Day. Reply To: Oxfam-mail.

Get an update on what happened at the World Bank and IMF meetings:

Find out more about Stand Up events taking place around the world.


Wear your white band – if you haven’t got one, make one from white paper or material, or buy one from Oxfam’s on-line store.

Take part in a stand up event near you.

Organise your own event – contact local cinemas, theatres, concerts or other audience-focused events and ask them to all stand up before the event starts. Take a look at the toolkit for more ideas.

Whatever you do, make sure you’re part of a world record that will make history. Regards, Alison Woodhead, Millennium Development Goals Team, Manager.
