Join the world’s longest toilet queue

A fun bit of campaigning you might want to get involved in this month – Tearfund, WaterAid and others have been calling for a focus on water and sanitation in aid. To raise awareness of these problems, they are organising the world’s longest toilet queue on Monday 22nd of March. Queues will be held in various locations around the world. The big one will be in London, 8:30am at the Old Palace Yard in Westminster:

“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.

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.”
