Global Day of Action Against Poverty!


Heavier Octaves Quote for the Day:


"The curse of poverty has no justification in our age. It is socially as cruel and blind as the practice of cannibalism at the dawn of civilization, when men ate each other because they had not yet learned to take food from the soil or to consume the abundant animal life around them. The time has come for us to civilize ourselves by the total, direct and immediate abolition of poverty."

- Martin Luther King, Jr.


This is the day for one billion people around the world who live in extreme poverty.Today One members and activists from around the world are walking the halls of congress and delivering tens of thousands of letters about the Jubilee Act.Reverend David Duncombe is eating for his first day after a 40 day fast.


Today the One organization is calling on you to call members of Congress asking them to co-sponsor the Jubilee Act.

Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Day. Let's see if the Economic Stimulus packages offered by the President and the current Presidential candidates will be in line with the spirit of abolishing poverty. Yes. It exists even in the USA!
