Banding together


Church leaders in London (below, Reuters photo), campaigners in Birmingham (right), and women prisoners in Redditch all donned white armbands on Wednesday of last week as a symbol of the Make Poverty History campaign ( News and Comment, 21 January).

The Archbishop of Canterbury was joined at Lambeth Palace by ( left to right) the Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Cormac Murphy O' Connor; the Revd David Coffey, Moderator of the Free Churches Group; and the Revd Esme Beswick of the Joint Anglo Caribbean Council of Churches. The leaders said that 30,000 deaths a day from poverty were preventable.
