Politicians sign pledge for tolerance in memory of Jo Cox

ALMOST 90 Australian politicians have signed a pledge for tolerance to support the legacy of British politician Jo Cox, who was murdered last week.

The statement, released yesterday on what would have been her 42nd birthday, called on world leaders to support Ms Cox's message "we are far more united and have far more in common with each other than the things that divide us".

Yesterday in Melbourne, aid agencies came together at a memorial event at Oxfam's headquarters to honour Ms Cox and her legacy through the #MoreInCommon movement.

Ms Cox led Oxfam policy before politics.
