On May 14th 2010, at 10 AM, more than ten thousand young people danced together in at La Fontaine Park in Montreal, Canada to send a message to world leaders: Keep Your Promises!
Inspired by the “At the Table” campaign, these young people asked the leaders of the G8 and G20 countries to keep their promises to:
- Finance those countries most affected by climate change, those in the south with limited resources and who have contributed the least to the problem.
- Spend 0.o7 % of their national income to development aid.
- Accomplish the Millenium Development Goals as of 2015.
Here’s a video of the event:
Oxfam-Québec organized the flash mob march.
If you are in Canada, enjoy your long weekend!
