THE CAMPAIGN
Over 30 million people from all around the world gave us their names for the live8 list which was presented to Tony Blair, as chair of the G8, by representatives of LIVE 8 and the Global Call to Action against Poverty.

We couldn't have made it clearer that we expect the politicians of this generation to end the scandal of stupid, immoral poverty.

What happened
After the leaders had met Kofi Annan, the Secretary General of the United Nations, called the Gleneagles G8 'the greatest summit for Africa ever'. Only time will tell if this summit is historic or not. What is true is that never before have so many people forced a change of policy onto the global agenda. The leaders took steps to increase aid and cancel debt for some of the poorest countries in the world, they also agreed to look at damaging trade policies when they meet later this year and next.
