For those who will be in Vienna at AIDS 2010...
***PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY***
***APOLOGIES FOR CROSS-POSTINGS***
"I was honoured to receive an invitation to speak at the March and Rally for Human Rights in Vienna. I hope all of you who will be in Vienna will participate in the March. The conference and the March in particular are a great opportunity to unite everyone involved in the fight against AIDS at a defining moment in the history of the response."
