Prime Minister Stephen Harper is attending his second G8 meeting. CUPE and Oxfam are calling on the Canadian government to help make poverty history in the global south by supporting strong public services. 

Send a message to Prime Minister Stephen Harper right now. Tell him it’s time to deliver.

Vital public services – health, education, water and sanitation – are the key to transforming the lives of people living in poverty.

CUPE and Oxfam have developed a flash video that makes the case and links you to our online action addressed to Prime Minister Harper. Watch the video, and forward the link to all your friends, family and co-workers.

Join thousands of others calling on Canada to increase aid that ends poverty, promotes human rights and builds public services without promoting privatization.

This action is part of CUPE and Oxfam’s joint work calling for universal access to water, sanitation, health care and education services in the global South. For more background, read Oxfam International’s report “In the Public Interest”.
