According to the Reaffirm blog:

“This year our economy is expected to shrink by 8%, but we have reduced our commitment to those most margainalised in this world by 22%.

In 2009, we will commit 0.48% of our GNP to the world’s poorest – just above the amount Mr Cowen committed that we would achieve by 2002.”

You can add your name on the blog if you want the government to reaffairm its pre-budget committment to the world’s poor.
