Uniting Church Queensland Synod Moderator Rev Kaye Ronalds joined Brisbane church leaders at a prayer vigil on 17 October against the endemic corruption which keeps people in poverty across the world.
The ecumenical vigil at Wilson Outlook Reserve in Brisbane was one of an estimated 2000 prayer vigils held worldwide during Anti-poverty Week from 13–19 October. The initiative is part of a campaign by Exposed, a global coalition of churches and organisations including Micah Challenge and the World Council of Churches.
Micah Challenge Australia's Shine the Light campaign is calling on the Federal Government to implement measures to improve transparency and to enable the governments of developing countries to better hold multinational companies to account for the taxes they pay in the countries in which they operate.
