15-Million To Take Action for A Better World

 

MEDIA RELEASE

Millions of women, men and children from more than sixty countries are taking to the streets, markets, workplaces and online throughout the month of May to demand that world leaders take ambitious actions this year to end poverty, inequalities and climate change.

Some 15 million people from every region of the world are expected to participate in the action/2015 May Month of Action -- which is being coordinated by World Vision and the Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) -- united by an overarching call to the world's nations to adopt ambitious anti-poverty and climate agendas at two major forthcoming UN summits.

The month of May was chosen for this mass display of People Power because governments are right now negotiating the texts that will be adopted at the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Summit in September and the COP21 climate negotiations in December.

GCAP Solidarity with Nepal

A call to prioritize marginalized and excluded people in Nepal

After the earthquake in Nepal: Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) calls on the  international community to work with local civil society to reach and deliver aid to marginalised and excluded communities  in remote areas.

“Even after a week, immediate relief has not reached remote areas” reports Daya Sagar Shrestha today, the Director of the NGO Federation of Nepal. “People in 10 districts are facing serious humanitarian challenges. The number of deaths has crossed over 5000 and hundreds of thousands of people have been wounded.”

The Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) expresses wholehearted solidarity with the people of Nepal and hopes that the nation gains the strength to overcome this disaster. GCAP recognises the efforts of the Government of Nepal but the extent of the humanitarian crisis and limited resources there needs timely and quality support from international organizations.

Release the five Women Activists now!

               

 

We condemn the illegal detention of young feminist activists in mainland China and call for their immediate release!

Instead of reminding the world of the historic importance of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and its own contribution and commitment to the same, the Chinese state chose to illegally detain five young feminist activists. In a clampdown, prominent activists, Li Tingting (also known as Maizi), Wei Tingting, Wang Man in Beijing, Wu Rongrong in Hangzhou, and Zheng Churang (also known as Datu) in Guangzhou, have been detained.

The arrests were triggered by the five young women preparing stickers printed with sentences in Chinese such as “Stop sexual harassment, let safety be with you, me and her” and “Run police run, arrest those who commit sexual harassment!”, which they planned to distribute on 7 March in the streets of their cities.

GCAP Japan: More and Better Aid!

From mid-September to mid-October, as students and concerned citizens 'stood up' across Japan to call on governments to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and create a just Post-2015 sustainable development agenda, GCAP Japan has been working to shape how Japan delivers foreign aid.

Japan - one of the world's largest international donors - is in the process of revising the charter that governs its Official Development Assistance (ODA).

In 2013, Japan spent US$11.79 billion on ODA, according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). It ranks 4th among OECD countries in terms of absolute numbers, but just 18th in terms of percentage of national income.


Students at Konan Junior High School in the Shiga Prefecture of Japan 'Stand Up' for a world filled with smiles and without poverty.  A key demand of anti-poverty campaigners is that Japan better spend its Official Development Assistance.

In a Time of Ebola, Lobbying for Action on Poverty

GCAP Liberia and a coalition of civil society leaders - representing women, youth, elderly, the disabled and democracy advocates - met with Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in September to emphasise the urgency of achieving the Millennium Development Goals in 2015 and adopting a transformative Post-2015 sustainable development agenda.

The meeting took place against the backdrop of the Ebola virus, which was first reported in Liberia in March 2014 and has since claimed some 2500 lives.

"We are aware of the many challenges our President is facing in the fight against the killer Ebola virus and the slow economy growth," notes James Roberts of GCAP Liberia.  "Civil society actors will remain committed and persistent in influencing our President to push harder for a legitimate Post-2015 development agenda that is more inclusive and participatory."

Cambodia at a Crossroads: New Laws Would Limit Freedoms

Set against a background of endemic corruption, unsustainably low wages and impoverishing confiscations of land, Cambodia is considering a series of laws that will severely restrict human rights and the activities of civil society organisations working on these issues.
 
That's the conclusion of an international delegation - including GCAP - which just visited Cambodia, at the invitation of our national coalition there, to highlight the shrinking space for civic expression and individual freedoms. Read on for the media release and our recommendations as well as French, Spanish and Portuguese translations.
