By Prince Nagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, June 7 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf wants world leaders and global actors to take steps in 2015 to end world hunger, poverty and suffering.

According to a dispatch from Munich, Germany, the Liberian leader made the call in her address to thousands of politicians, musicians, peace activists, celebrities and civil society leaders at a public mobilization and poverty eradication outdoor event in Munich, Germany.

President Sirleaf stressed that the year 2015 is a pivotal year to change the future of the world's people and the planet adding, ‘the decisions and actions global leaders and actors collectively take in the next few months will go a long way in determining whether development continues or stalls.

"In September, at the United Nations General Assembly, leaders of nations of the world will adopt a new agenda ; building upon the Millenium Development Goals ; they will establish global goals for sustainable development to be achieved within the next 15 years," President Sirleaf noted.

The Liberian leader also disclosed that in July in Addis Ababa, important decisions will be taken at the Finance Development Meeting when nations, both rich and poor, will demonstrate commitment to adopting policies and investing resources in the New World Order, while in  December, in Paris, nations will determine the response to a changing world due to climate change.

The public gathering was organized by Campaign Organization ONE, the Global Poverty Project and German and international civil society groups. They called on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other world leaders to overcome extreme poverty by 2030.

The occasion which was held under the theme:  “United Against Poverty” had a message to world leaders: “It is time to keep your promise and show courageous leadership – we must act now to end extreme poverty.”
