Religious leaders’ poverty plea to G8

Senior British religious figures from all major faiths have sent an open letter to Prime Minister Tony Blair, urging him to press for a radical commitment to help the world’s poorest countries when he chairs next week’s Group of 8 industrialized nations summit at Gleneagles, Scotland.

The letter calls on the prime minister to “grasp with urgency” the opportunity to take action against poverty in the developing world. The letter is signed by Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor and the Anglican Archbishop Rowan Williams of Canterbury. Their co-signatories include Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks; Sheikh Zaki Badawi, Chair of the Council of Mosques and Imams; and Free Churches Moderator David Coffey.
