Friday, February 25, 2005 10:25 AM

In order to call on governments to fully reaffirm the Beijing Platform for Action, letters in English, Czech, Bulgarian and Slovak are being sent. If you would like to sign the letter, send an e-mail to with the name of your organization and country. Because most of the negotiations regarding the political declaration will occur before the Beijing +10 meeting, it is important that work be done on a national scale prior to the meeting. At the commencement of the Beijing+10 meeting, if the political declaration is still under negotiation, this letter (and its signatures) will be used in the media and for other purposes in New York. Hence, the more organizations that sign-on to the letter—the greater the impact and message the letter will hold. The letter, titled, “A Sign-on Letter Calling on Governments to Universally Reaffirm and Implement the Beijing Platform for Action,” and the number of signatures collected will be available at
