Dear friend, Stand Up and Take Action 2008 will be taking place during October 17-19, less than four days away!

Last year, 43.7 million people around the world took part in the biggest global mobilisation to end poverty and inequality and for the Millennium Development Goals. It wouldn't have been a success without your support and participation.

This year, at a time of global financial crises and food shortages, more than ever we need to ACT together in order send a strong message to world leaders to keep their promises to end poverty and inequality. Your actions count, and this year we're hoping to mobilise 1% of the population - that's over 67 million people around the world.

Today, we are asking you to Stand Up and Take Action once again. What can you do?
