Calls for Cameron to tackle hunger issues through G8

The IF campaign will be formally launched tonight in London, a multi charity campaign aiming to end world hunger and poverty.

Backed by a hundred charities, the IF coalition is asking for Prime Minister David Cameron to tackle four main issues through the G8:

  • Stop poor farmers being forced off their land, and use the available land to grow food for people, not biofuels for cars
  • Ensure governments keep their promises on aid, invest to stop children dying from malnutrition and help the poorest people feed themselves through investment in small farmers
  • Make governments stop big companies dodging tax in poor countries, so that millions of people can free themselves from hunger
  • Force governments and investors to be "honest and open" about the deals they make in the poorest countries that stop people getting enough food
