Well, not gatecrashing exactly. Our campaign ambassador Michelle Yeoh was invited. But nobody was expecting her to use her speaking slot to launch into an impassioned call for the assembled politicians, philanthropists and business leaders to add road safety to their priority list. As Michelle's co-star Jet Li signed one of our Decade signature boards, she reeled off some of the shocking statistics that make it very hard to argue against including road traffic injury as a subject for future CGI meetings, not to mention some of the other fora where the world's elite meet to debate the world's ills and what to do about them.
Michelle seems to have convinced her audience: signatories to our call for a Decade of Action included Bill Clinton himself and film director Oliver Stone...someone who knows a good conspiracy (of silence) when he sees it.
