Each action card signed called on the government to honour its commitment to spend 0.7% of national income on aid to the poorest by 2013, to push for a fair climate change deal at the UN, and to ensure businesses are accountable to people in poor countries affected by their operations
Special prayers were said for our leaders: that they may listen to us and take action to improve conditions for people who are poor and be inspired to take positive action to address the causes of poverty.
