International White Band Day
“On December 10th, you can wear the white band and show you’re part of the fight against global AIDS and extreme poverty. On this final White Band Day of 2005, one of three days this year when people from America to Zambia unite in ONE voice, we can move a step closer to making poverty history by making trade fair.
World leaders took important steps at the G8 Summit in July and the World Summit in September. Now they must help make trade part of the solution to poverty, instead of one of the causes. As people around the world gather to mark White Band Day, leaders from around the world will also gather in Hong Kong to consider this opportunity to help millions lift themselves out of poverty by changing the rules of trade.”
