📢 REACTION: @EUCouncil must listen to @Europarl_EN call for a slightly better EU minimum tax. EU leaders can't allow tax aggressive countries to, once again, decide the terms of the deal. Read 👉 oxf.am/EPminimumtaxvote #EUminimumtax

Nearly half of the livestock in East Africa has perished due to the worst drought in 40 years. Pastoralists’ are losing their source of food and income. They're paying for a climate crisis they hardly caused. Retweet to urge leaders to take action on this crisis #NoMoreDelays

As economies slowly begin to recover and jobs trickle in after the pandemic, Africa will have to #BuildBackFairer by addressing wage inequality which disempowers women and is the highest of any developing region. Read the report: oxfam.org/en/research/africa… #AfricaInequalityCrisis

A decade ago we said “never again” to famine. But @Oxfam' & @save_children's Dangerous Delay 2 Report has found that the world has again failed to avert #Hunger. 23M people in the Horn of Africa are facing extreme hunger. #NoMoreDelays. Read the report: save.tc/Y2EU50JaTot

Climate change has made droughts prolonged and extreme. East Africa is ravaged by a 2 year drought - the worst in 40 years. Yet, the region is least responsible for the climate crisis. East Africa contributes to 0.1% of Global CO2 emissions. oxf.am/DangerousDelay

Over a decade since the 2011 famine killed more than 260K people in Somalia; another famine is looming in East Africa. A report by Oxfam and @SavetheChildren finds that despite all the warnings the global system is still acting too late: oxf.am/DangerousDelay #NoMoreDelays

Over de hele wereld worden #LHBTQIA+ personen nog steeds ongelijk behandeld. Door de wet én door mensen. De gevolgen? Zij hebben minders kans op een baan, zijn vaker onveilig in de klas of op straat, en hebben minder goede toegang tot zorg. Deze #ongelijkheid moet stoppen!
