  "This is a wonderful statement of global determination and commitment to end the injustice of extreme poverty," said Desmond Tutu, archbishop of Cape Town, adding: "116 million people have stood together to say [that]. This message must be heard by leaders."

   The worldwide actions, billed as "Stand Up and Take Action," were jointly organized by two international groups, the Global Call to Action against Poverty (GCAP) and the UN Millennium Campaign.
