Africa will be high on the agenda at the G8 summit, but who's perspective will we all be getting on it? Panos London will be darned if we don't all hear what Africans have to say about it - and this means Africa too. Because African media often lack the resources to follow international processes and events, they themselves end up falling back on Western media reports, angled entirely wrong for stimulating national debate.
Panos have gathered a crew of seasoned African reporters from Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Uganda, Sierra Leone and Tanzania, funded their trip to Scotland, and invited them to blog events here: www.panos.org.uk/africavox
. Tune in tomorrow.
openDemocracy's own G8 blog is heating up here
. And yesterday I got a phone call from Seed Magazine
, who have launched a culture/science G8 blog here: www.scienceg8.com
(nearly ready, give 'em a day).
G8 blogs are all the rage. Here are a few more in totally random order:
Indymedia: G8 protest blogs
Technorati tag: G8
The Overseas Development Institute in the UK has a G8 blog too: ODI 2005 Blog
