Carrying the can for clean water and sanitation

My friend Tim from Journey Beyond is taking part in an interesting protest on July 2nd, and you are all welcome to participate. Along with friends and colleagues, he will be scooping up 20 litres of water from the Thames and carrying it on his head to Number 10 Downing Street. Tearfund petition postcards will be handed to Gordon Brown, asking for better water and sanitation for the world’s poor.

“About 900 million people, out of sight, collect dirty water and carry it long distances everyday” Tim explains. “Imaging, in the height of rush hour, those ‘out of sight’ millions being made visible in central London!”

If you would like to join in, meet at Westminster Bridge at 8:30 on thursday 2nd of July, and have a look at this video to explain why this action is so necessary.
