Make Poverty History is encouraging Australians to send a letter to the Prime Minister urging the government to keep its commitment to halve global poverty by 2015. Both major political parties have promised to lift aid spending to 0.5% of GNI by 2015. However, there has been speculation that the government may cut aid in the budget.

Please go to Make Poverty History to sign an email to the Prime Minister and Treasurer to show your support for Australia keeping its promise to the world’s poorest people.

Please do so in the next couple of days.
