2011 G8 Summit in Deauville, France

  • 1

The G8 leaders made a promise to the world’s poorest people to halve poverty by 2015 and to put people first. With only four years to go on that commitment, the G8 must enact an emergency plan to deliver the aid they have promised, and invest in reducing hunger, health and education and take action to stop rich companies avoiding taxes in poor countries.

    Lives lost in Syria
    Written by Camilla Jelbart Mosse, Oxfam's Humanitarian Campaign ManagerAs G8 leaders meet on Syria, the stakes couldn’t be higher for those caught in the crossfire.“My family lost our home and many loved ones. We’d go for days without being able to raise our heads to buy water and bread as it wasn’t safe, so we had to leave Syria. We just want to go home.”

    G8 Leaders cook it up!

    Oxfam International | 16 Jun, 2013

    G8 leaders (well, our Big Head versions) cook it up in Belfast - trying to crack the recipe that'll end world hunger. The G8 will meet in Northern Ireland on June 17& 18.

    Oxfam is calling on G8 leaders to do all they can to put us on a path that will end the scandal of global hunger. Specifically, G8 leaders must tackle two of the big drivers of hunger; tax dodging and land grabs.

    Join us in asking the G8 to put a stop to a tax system that allows rich companies and individuals to avoid paying their fair share in tax, while the world’s poorest struggle to make a living. Governments are letting people hide at least $18.5 trillion in offshore tax havens. Yes, you read that right - 18.5 trillion.

    Call on the G8 to tackle the land grabs that rob the world’s poorest of their homes and the land they need for food and shelter. Big land deals are tearing whole communities apart.
