During the G8 feast in L'Aquila more than 1,000 children in poor countries will die of hunger. Ending hunger needs to top the G8 menu. This Oxfam Big Heads stunt shows the G8 world leaders enjoying a big Italian meal.
Climate change is already hitting poor people the hardest, despite them emitting the least amount of carbon and therefore being the least responsible. Oxfam is calling for a fair and adequate deal which cuts emissions in line with what the science demands and provides the funding poor countries need to adapt to a changing climate. Oxfam estimates that $ 50 billion a year is needed.
