GCAP Korea representative, Hykungung Kim was one of a group of international NGOs to meet Japanese Prime Minister Fukuda in Tokyo on Wednesday June 18th. She also tied a white and, the symbol of the campaign, around the wrist of the Prime Minister who stood for a photograph beside the campaign symbol, a Tanabata bamboo tree.

Representing the massive GCAP anti-poverty alliance, Hykungung explained to the Prime Minister how last year we mobilized over 1.2 million Voices Against Poverty which were presented to Chancellor Merkel just prior to the G8 Summit in Heiligendamm.

This year, we are undertaking the Tanabata Action and have so far collected over 600,000 wishes in Japan and around the world. As well as people in G8 countries, thousands of people in Asia, Africa and all around the world are demanding action from the G8.

We call on Prime Minister Fukuda, as President of the G8, to show leadership to his fellow G8 leaders and work in Hokkaido to deliver on the promises made in 2005 and 2007.

The Tanabata Action Now petition will continue to collect wishes online and offline right up to the G8.
