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".

Trade deals, Brexit and disaster capitalism
