African bloggers

1 July 2005

Panos London announced yesterday a G8 blog by 8 African journalists from Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Uganda, Sierra Leone and Tanzania. Hoping to show the "human perspective" of G8, they will be in Scotland from tomorrow (2nd July) until the close of the summit, filing daily news, views and interviews. 

Elsewhere, all attention is focussed on tomorrow's Live8 and the Make Poverty History march in Edinburgh, both hoping to influence the Group of Eight leaders to "change the world".

Why we're suing over the £23m NHS data deal with 'spy tech' firm Palantir

Right as the NHS battles 'vaccine hesitancy', why is the government giving a CIA-backed firm – whose spyware has been accused of creating ‘racist’ feedback loops in US policing – a major, long-term role in handling our personal health information, and in England's cherished NHS?

Get the inside story from the journalists and lawyers battling to force transparency from the government on what they're doing with public money – and our health records.

Join us for this free event on 4 March at 5pm UK time/12pm EST.
