Standing Up to Make Some Noise

Campaigning for change article written on the 28 Sep 2010

From 17-19 September 2010, millions of people around the globe Stood Up, Took Action and Made A Noise for the MDGs. This is the world’s largest mobilisation seeking to end global poverty, address its causes and achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

In Sydney, the Minning Minni Kaiwarine Indigenous Family Dance group performed at First Fleet Park alongside the In Rhythm drummers, and the noise could be heard streets away. Check out this great video of the day put together by Ally Kvisle for Make Poverty History, featuring the song ‘Stand Up’ by Blue King Brown.
