    What’s really in your morning bowl of cereal?
    Palm oil is everywhere, in food and everyday items you don’t even realize. It’s in your morning bowl of cereal, your afternoon biscuits, your dinner pizza, in soap and even in the biodiesel that fuels your car. And sadly, in many places, it comes with human and environmental costs. To find out why, I recently joined an Oxfam field trip to Indonesia, the world’s largest palm oil producer. We wanted...

    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.

    G8 Attempts to Fix Broken Promises with Private Sector Partnership

    Oxfam International | 18 May, 2012

    “This new alliance – is a nice complement at best, a deflection at worst. The role of the private sector is important, but they will not be able to make up for the G8’s broken promises,” said Ndiaye. “Smallholder farmers need the freedom to pursue their own growing strategies, not take overly-prescriptive tips on farming from G8 leaders, or one size fits all technologies from far away CEOs.”
