LIVE 8 - The Long Walk to Justice

8 World Leaders will gather in Scotland for the G8 Summit on July 6, where they will discuss possible plans to:
- double the aid sent to the world's poorest countries,
- fully cancel their debts,
- change the trade laws so that they can build their own future.

It is the objective of Live8 to make it known to these 8 World Leaders that the rest of world cares just as much to making poverty end. Millions are stricken with povery, and the children are most especially affected.

I feel very fortunate that I am still able to eat three square meals a day and even blog about my favorite food, while others do not even have access to drinking water! Thank you to Bambit and Teacher Sol for blogging about this.

Live8 is not about giving donations. It's about making your stand, and letting the World Leaders know that you support the move to end poverty!
