Well, I usually am not very political. But recently, someone pointed out the millenium campaign (“joint effort against poverty”) to me. This is the Swiss website, this is the German version, and here is another site about it. I think the eight goals of the campaign make sense, even if some of the things are disputable. For example, I can’t get rid of the feeling, that development aid is futile, except for filling the pockets of corrupt government clerks or supporting organized crime. Nonetheless, it should be tried over and over, since injustice and opportunity unequalness is still so blatant throughout the world.
At least, there is a little gleam of hope. The elections in the united states of america that have just come to pass have made the worst republican party members lose their power and gives the democrat party a chance to prove the world, that better ways are possible.
I recommend participating in the millenium campaign and support its goals.
