Shining the light on Hunger: Avaaz/ActionAid stunt at the Roman Colosseum on the eve of the World Food Summit

For the first time in human history, the number of people across the world suffering from hunger exceeds 1 billion -- one sixth of the world´s population.

Next week, global leaders will meet at the World Food Summit in Rome to address this growing crisis. But some wealthy countries are threatening to renege on a new $20 billion pledge made earlier this year to boost agriculture in the poorest countries.

Let's act before famines set in. Sign the petition below and tell friends, it will be delivered directly to world leaders and through a spectacular stunt at the Roman Colosseum on the eve of the Summit.
