Some of the world’s most famous landmarks will be adorned with huge white bands on 1st July, as part of a curtain-raiser to a week of global action during which campaigners and the public in 72 countries will use their voices to call for an end to global poverty.
As part of the Global Call to Action against Poverty (GCAP), the world’s largest anti-poverty movement, landmarks including Australia’s Sydney Harbour Bridge, Rome’s Trevi Fountain, a huge mosque in Indonesia, St Paul’s Cathedral in London, Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate and a famous cotton tree in Sierra Leone will simultaneously be wrapped in oversized white bands – the symbol of the global campaign.
