10,000 Young People Gather in Montreal to Remind World Leaders To Keep Their Promises

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.
