Dear CIVICUS Members,

We have just received news that the UN Secretary General will receive the global GCAP/Avaaz petition on the food crisis on Wednesday morning in Rome at the FAO meeting. 

This is a huge opportunity to have your voices heard and to tell world leaders we want Action Now to Stop the Food Crisis. Please sign and circulate (below) again through all your networks - let's try to get half a million signatures!

Stop the food crisis

Stop the Food Crisis

Act Now against Poverty and Inequality!

The world is facing a global food crisis. Millions of people, especially women, are unable to feed their families due to the rise in the cost of staple foods such as rice, maize and corn.

Already over 800 million people suffer from hunger and with prices doubling in the last two years and skyrocketing in the last few months, it is estimated this crisis will push 100 million more people into poverty.

On June 3-5, members of the UN High Level Task Force on the food crisis, along with Heads of State and representatives from the World Bank and IMF will meet at the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in Rome. The Global Call to Action Against Poverty, along with many other civil society groups is demanding these leaders TAKE ACTION NOW!

Join hundreds of thousands of people around the world and sign the petition calling on world leaders to take immediate action to stop the food crisis by:

  1. mobilizing emergency funding to prevent starvation
  2. removing perverse incentives to turn food into biofuels
  3. ending market speculation that artificially increases food prices
  4. tackling the underlying causes by ending harmful trade policies and investing in sustainable small-scale agricultural production in developing nations
  5. investing in programs that empower women and girls to stop child labour and domestic violence
  6. honouring their commitments to meet and exceed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)
