September-November 2007

Overall Assessment

From September to November, ACT UP Paris did not engage in any critical activity related to the tenofovir clinical trials, nor did it target the activities or image of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Amid the recent elections in France and as the 2008 U.S. presidential elections approach, the ACT UP movement in France and the United States has focused increasingly on politics and has put less emphasis on corporate campaigning. ACT UP Paris has been criticizing the new French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s health policies since his inauguration in September, while ACT UP Philadelphia recently protested outside of the Democratic presidential debates at Drexel University.
We expect this political focus to continue throughout 2007.
