Dear Mr Blair,

This week you and your G8 colleagues have the opportunity to make poverty history by delivering crucial changes on trade justice, debt and aid.

You and seven other men in Gleneagles can stop a child dying every three seconds. You can stop the policies that create poverty and instead begin to transform the lives of the world's poorest people.

Please use your unique position and influence as G8 host to:

- change the unjust rules of trade, respecting poor countries' rights to decide on trade policies that will help end poverty
- cancel all the debt of all the poorest countries that need it
- deliver at least $50 billion more in aid each year starting now, and make it work better for people in poverty.

Along with millions of others around the world, I'll be wearing a white band to remind you of what you must do and waiting to see if you deliver.

Now is the time Mr Blair. Please do not squander this moment.

Yours sincerely,

JR Colomines-Companys

Aquesta carta, adreçada via e-mail, al President britànic Tony Blair, ha estat enviada per centenars de persones a traves de la Campanya “Fem de la probresa història” - MAKE POVERTY HISTORY, per influir en la reunió de G-8, que avui comença a Escòcia.

Jo també l’he enviat, tot hi que sóc molt escèptic dels resultats d’aquest tipus de Cimeres. Hi ha molta hipocresia i a més, amb la presencià d’una Rússia, violadora dels drets humans.
