The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty was marked around the world again this year, with actions in 30 countries. Below, we highlight some actions that were taken to build The World We Want:
In Japan, the SUTA 2012 campaign was held from 1 to 17 October. People did stand up in support of poverty eradication all over the country. About 27,000 people stood up, and around 1,200 events were reported in Japan.
In conjunction with the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty on October 17th, GCAP will be launching the World We Want Report. This report is a reflection of responses and messages that civil society and citizens have sent to world leaders this year. Below is another snapshot of the work that will be available in the full report.
