The same release from the Anglican Communion Office is headlined The Archbishop of Canterbury – plans to challenge global governments to tackle poverty.
And when released by Episcopal News Service it becomes Bishops’ London walk to underscore commitment to MDGs.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has today announced plans to mount an unprecedented mass walk of bishops and other faith leaders through central London during the forthcoming Lambeth Conference to demonstrate the Anglican Communion’s determination to help end extreme poverty across the globe…
Why is this being announced today?
The announcement of this walk is being released to coincide with a meeting of faith leaders and heads of faith-based development agencies, who met at Lambeth Palace today (29th May). The group discussed how faith groups can ensure that governments honour their spending commitments towards the UN targets and make policy decisions in their support.
Not explained is why the LamPal website shows today’s date on this release as Donnerstag 29 Mai 2008. Update This has now been corrected.
The Living Church has reported the news with a snappier headline: Archbishop Plans London March with Poverty Focus.
Kent News appears to be the only secular UK news outlet so far to report on this: Bishops to march on London in name of poverty.
