Make IF Happen- Saturday 8th June in Hyde Park


Hannah De Souza writes: Want to stand up for what’s right? Want to make a difference to those who don’t have a voice? Want to join tens of thousands of others for a once-in-a-lifetime afternoon of activity? Then do it! You may have heard of the ‘Enough Food for Everyone IF’ campaign, or this may be the first time. Either way, you, yes YOU, can be part of something great by coming along to Hyde Park on 8th June 2013 to demand action on hunger. Whether you’re young or...not so young, you can join CAFOD, celebrities and over 100 other agencies in challenging the Prime Minister and G8 leaders to ensure that there is enough food for everyone IF: 

§ We put a STOP to poor farmers being forced off their land

§ Governments KEEP their promises on aid

§ Governments STOP big companies dodging tax

§ Governments and investors are honest about deals made in the poorest countries.

Hélder Câmara once said “When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist.” So it’s great to give food to the poor, it really is, but it’s time to go deeper. Let’s tackle the reasons WHY these people, who are just like you and me, don’t have food. That way, WE can make a difference to them not just today, but for every day to come.

Still not convinced? Visit http://www.cafod.org.uk/Events/IF-campaign-event to find out more.

Be part of the biggest campaign since Make Poverty History. My name is Hannah, I am volunteering with CAFOD before I head off to University, I will be at Hyde Park on 8th June to make a stand, are you with me?
