Fw: War on poverty
- I'm forwarding this that I received from a friend in Jamaica...a commonwealth country, I believe. So, I felt contacting Tony Blair as an American may not serve a purpose but there it is, the option of United States, in listing your country on the website to send the email. (www.maketradefair.com/go/g8)President Bush will be at the G8 summit. So, here is information if you want to contact him about it too. And by the way, in finding this contact info I found that today I could click a spot on the White House web site http://www.whitehouse.gov/ and watch 20 plus minutes of speech and the President signing the HIV/AIDS bill. A bit grandstandy but, for me anyway, historically important. CathyTo telephone the White House
