ONE Day of Action on the Eve of the EU Budget Summit

Join the fight against extreme poverty

ONE shirtYesterday, just as European leaders began to descend on Brussels, ONE hit the streets with volunteers from across the globe and paid a visit to all 27 EU permanent representations.

As a creative response to President Van Rompuy’s statement that the EU budget summit could be the first “three shirter” under his watch, ONE delivered Lifesaver shirts to all European heads of government with special care instructions: When ironing out the details, remember to protect EU development aid. These special deliveries were made here in Brussels and in capitals across the continent.

What was reinforced repeatedly in our 27 deliveries and 13 bilateral meetings over the last few days is the critical role that ONE members continue to play in this budget negotiation process: Leaders need to know that there is a European constituency for development. In these final hours of the fight to save EU aid, please help us keep up the noise. Email President Van Rompuy; check out our Lifesaver campaign resource page; share the report on social media. Before leaders disappear into the negotiations conclave, make sure your voice is heard.
