ONE.org yelled at me to support the Jubilee Act, allowing the USA to follow through with debt relief. At issue also seems to be a discussion of the IMF's current austerity requirement policies.

In a related event, Jimmy Wales came out with a appeal to Wikipedia users, presenting Wikimedia projects as vehicles for development themselves. Fight poverty by editing encyclopedia articles and paying for servers to hold the data.
