Attention Superbadger users, I have a flurry of action for you, over at http://apps.facebook.com/superbadger.
We saw a great campaign victory earlier this year when Haiti received debt cancellation to help rebuild after the earthquake. The same principle should apply to Pakistan now. We’ve all seen the devastating floods in Pakistan. We’ve given generously and that money is helping.
But at the same time, Pakistan’s government is sending $8 million every day out of the country again in debt repayments.
If the UK and other rich countries stopped taking the money, it could help a lot of people who’ve lost everything rebuild their lives. We badgered them to do this for Haiti, and they did. It’s time to ask again.

Thank you for all you do and enjoy the week – oh and a little heads up that I’m sending a crack squad out to the Millennium Development Goal summit in a few days time. They will be keeping me updated from the UN and we’ll be posting their reports here as well.
