【緊急国際署名】食料価格高騰対策へ国連を通じサミットに圧力を!

世界的な市民活動団体Avaazの呼びかけによる国連提出署名です。

最近の食料価格の高騰は、特にバングラデシュから西アフリカにいたる広範囲の地域で何十億もの人々の生活を圧迫し、暴動の引き金ともなっています。さらには、1億人が飢餓に直面しているという各種援助団体からの情報もあります。

今週水曜日に開かれる先進国首脳サミットではこうした事態への対策も議題になりますが、これを後押しするための署名を国連事務総長に提出します。目標署名数は50万です。

Avaaz.org - The World in Action
Dear friends,

An emergency summit of world leaders is addressing the skyrocketing food crisis. The head of the United Nations will receive our call to action at the summit this Wednesday. Help us hit 500,000 signatures!

The world food crisis is skyrocketing – steadily rising prices are squeezing billions and triggering food riots from Bangladesh to South Africa. Aid agencies say 100 million people are facing starvation.

In response, the United Nations is convening an emergency summit of world leaders in Rome this week. There is a real danger that rich country leaders will push half measures and band-aid solutions – we need a huge global outcry to demand rapid, massive, coordinated action.

The head of the UN, Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, will receive our petition at the summit at 9:30AM on Wednesday morning. This is a huge opportunity for our voice to reach our leaders directly, but we need half a million voices in the next 60 hours. Click below to sign the petition if you haven't yet, and forward this email to everyone you know:

Already over 200,000 Avaaz members have joined our call for emergency food aid and deeper solutions such as investing in food production in poor countries and fixing harmful rich country policies such as burning food as biofuels. Our campaign was launched in response to a personal video appeal to our community from the foreign minister of Sierra Leone, where 90% of the population are facing severe hunger. Click above to watch the video.

The food crisis, like the climate crisis, is a planetary emergency. It's another sign of how interdependent and fragile our world is. And how we all need to work together, across all our borders and divisions, to save it.

With hope,

Paul, Ricken, Graziela, Galit, Iain, Ben, Pascal, Veronique, Milena and the whole Avaaz team.
