Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Dear Agent,

I write to you today to ask for your help. This week, my blog Visions for Africa urging UE Agents to join the Davos conversation and post a challenge or question to the World leaders attending the World Economic Forum in Tanzania from 5-7 May 2010 was featured on the Heros of Living Knowledge.

Agent Edayis answered the call and has posted a video question on Ethiopia, a country whose claim to fame is often Bob Geldof’s 1984 Band Aid and the country’s seemingly endless requirement for food aid. Agent Edayis talks about how farms in Ethiopia backed by foreign investors are growing with abundance, while indigenous farmers subsist on food aid. She asks how it is possible for the global community to stand silent and allow this abundance for a (foreign) elite few in a land notoriously known for famine.

I have had watched the video and, in my opinion, African and World leaders need to answer the question raised. Although the story addresses Ethiopia, the same is found in many countries across the globe. The people most affected are the poor, the voiceless - this is our chance to speak for them.

How can you help?

  • Watch Agent Edayis video and vote for it.
  • Put “Vote to get Agent Edayis to the World Economic Forum” as your status on your UE page
  • Send your version of this email to your friends in or outside UE about this and ask them to send the mail to their friends.
  • Tweeter, Facebook, Ning, …. about it - get the word out
  • Make suggestions on how else we can get votes for this video

Together we can SPEAK UP for our brothers and sisters in Ethiopia - will you to help?

Respectfully, Shakwei
