New Asian Campaign Starts Now

MEDIA RELEASE

With just 500 days until the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals and the start of a proposed new global framework to end poverty, the Action/2015 Asia platform is launching a series of interlinked public actions called "i Move Against Injustice, Inequality and Insecurity" to demand that local and global leaders deliver on promises to uphold the rights of every woman, man and child on the planet.
