From the MAKE POVERTY HISTORY web site:

MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY brings together a wide cross section of nearly 400 charities, campaigns, trade unions, faith groups and celebrities who are united by a common belief that 2005 offers an unprecedented opportunity for global change.

As such MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY is not affiliated to any political party and does not comment on the individual records OR manifestos of different parties during the period of a general election.

Political parties and political organisations are not part of MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY however members of MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY are asking candidates from all main political parties to back the demands of the campaign.

Anyone wishing to examine the record of individual parties should evaluate their commitments and actions alongside those called for by MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY.

Individual members of MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY may issue statements commenting on the parties in their individual capacity only.

The aim of the coalition is to encourage all political parties to adopt the policies that the coalition advocates and to build an ever greater movement committed to tackling world poverty.
