June 28, 2010
On the eve of the G-20 economic summit, about 2,000 people gathered Thursday in Toronto for a candlelight vigil to remember those lost to HIV/AIDS. The vigil, an annual event, this year focused on the needs of those patients around the world who still have no access to HIV medications, said Paul Law, a member of the organizing committee. The activists called on the world leaders at the summit to fight homophobia and anti-AIDS discrimination.
