Briefs

Please note that these are just extracts from the full briefs.
To download the briefs and supporting information you’ll need to register here.

 

CHILD LABOUR

Child labour isn’t working.
Children are not a short-term resource for immediate economic relief and their education is an investment in their country’s (and family’s) future.

 

CLIMATE CHANGE (endorsed by WWF)

It’s time to lead.
Europe’s leaders must approve a law to guarantee a 30% reduction
in CO2 emissions by 2020 this December in Copenhagen, or risk 1/3
of all animals being threatened with extinction by 2050.

 

HEALTHCARE DEPRIVATION (endorsed by Emergency)

Medical treatment is a right for all, not a privilege for some.
No one should die because they can’t afford, or can’t get health care.
That’s so last century.

 

HIV/AIDS (endorsed by Lila)

HIV isn’t a life sentence.
Being HIV positive is not a criminal offense. Governments must focus
on education and prevention of the disease rather than repression.

 

NUCLEAR EMERGENCY (endorsed by Greenpeace)

Nuclear power is going to blow up the planet.
Nuclear power is not safe or good enough for our planet. Rather than pursue a dangerous path that can offer little environment, we must pursue cheaper, cleaner, more sustainable forms of energy.

 

WAR ON TERROR (endorsed by Amnesty)

Close Guantanamo Bay? Yes We Can.
If the USA, and Barack Obama, want to make a genuine commitment
to human rights, they must follow the good start to his Presidency
and close Guantanamo Bay as quickly as possible.

 

WOMEN’S RIGHTS VIOLATION (endorsed by Amref)

Women give life to Africa.
Women in Africa are the pillars of their communities.
They must be provided with the means to gain respect and to be allowed
to speak with their own voice.
