See you in the queue!

Everyone loves a good queue, especially the British. So there’s no excuse for missing out on this fantastic event for World Water Day!

On Monday 22nd March 2010, people from around the world will join together to form the World’s Longest Toilet Queue for a Guinness World Record! 

Queues will be popping up all over the place to demand action from politicians attending the first ever High-Level Meeting on Water and Sanitation in Washington DC a few weeks later. So far 65 countries are taking part!


Conveniently arranged so you can join in before work, we will be standing in solidarity with the 2.5 billion people without a toilet, and the shocking 4,000 children under five who die every single day as a result. Everyone has a right to taps and toilets!

This will be a queue with a difference. Come along prepared to queue up for a giant toilet whilst wearing a mask of Gordon Brown as we strain (sorry!) to show him one last time that the UK government must demonstrate continued leadership and support at this meeting to tackle the sanitation and water crisis.

World Water Day, Monday 22 March at 8.30am (you’ll be on your way to work by 9am)

Old Palace Yard, Westminster

A free breakfast snack will be provided to help us go through the motions!


The London queue is organised by Tearfund, WaterAid, Pump Aid and other UK End Water Poverty members.
