Bobble-headed activists in Aussie lifesaver togs say world leaders must act now to stop the “wave of inequality” crashing into the world’s poor.
Oxfam activists, wearing brilliantly crafted bobble-heads of world leaders, said growing worldwide inequality needs to be put on the agenda at this weekend’s G20 Summit.
Chief Executive of Oxfam Helen Szoke said the divide between the rich and the poor is growing but world leaders can make a difference.
“We’re trying to draw attention to the fact that the gap is widening between the rich and the poor and that we really need the G20 to address inequality,” Dr Szoke said.
“This is a symbol that the G20 leaders can save lives if they address inequality, they can make decisions at the Brisbane meeting”
