World leaders are meeting at next week's London G20 Summit to tackle the crisis -- we desperately need them to agree to a bold global rescue package to stimulate, regulate and fundamentally reform the global economy, and drive a green recovery.
Without a massive outcry for bold action in the next few days, our leaders could fail this historic test. So we're launching an emergency petition to the London Summit -- it will be delivered direct to summit officials and leaders and in a thousands-strong march this weekend, so follow this link to add your voice:
A global depression could threaten everything we care about - breeding poverty, war, environmental devastation and threatening our jobs and our children's futures. We can stop this if we act together -- but leaders are far from consensus on this kind of bold global action needed. That's why we're ramping up the pressure with this emergency petition and taking to the streets.
The world's media will be in London to cover the summit, and with thousands of Avaaz members in green hard hats and carrying flags and banners on our behalf, the march will get big coverage and grab leaders' attention.
Everyone who participates will also have a chance to vote on the principles and reforms needed to rebuild the global economy -- and all our demands will be delivered to the G20 summit, so please sign the petition now:
In 1933, world leaders met in London -- and failed to stop a global depression that lasted a decade. In 2009, the people of the world must be right there challenging our leaders, demanding that they get it right.
With hope and determination,
Paul, Graziela, Ricken, Paula, Ben, Brett, Luis, Alice, Milena, Iain and the whole Avaaz team
