July 1st, BILBAO: CELEBRATION OF THE GLOBAL WHITE BAND DAY

The iconic Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao has been wrapped up in a white band as part of the hundreds of events taking place all over the world to demand an end to global poverty.

With this event in Bilbao, the Spanish campaigners are showcasing the Basque Countrys support for an end to global poverty and sending the key message around the world that we all believe in eradicating poverty.

On this special occasion, the President of the Basque Government , Mr Juan Jose Ibarretxe, (Lehendakari), and Mr. Carlos Jimenez Renjifo, Desk officer for Spain (RUNIC), will offer a key note speech to the general public, in order to celebrate both  the participation of the Basque Country in the Millennium Campaign and the support of the Guggenheim Museum to the campaign in Bilbao.

Many other Basque institutional authorities will be present.
