President Obama and his rich donors dined on caviar and sipped champagne at a $50,000-per-person fundraiser in NYC on May 13th. Outside the fundraiser 500 activists from ACT UP/NY and Philadelphia, Health GAP, NYCAHN/VOCAL, African Services Committee, Housing Works, CHAMP, AMSA and our allies were demonstrating to demand that he keep his promise to fund AIDS treatment around the world. Instead of increasing the number of people on treatment, like he promised, Obama is cutting funding for global AIDS, and people are being forced onto waiting lists for AIDS drugs. These people are sick, and without treatment, they will die. And the US promised them treatment!
