Highlights from Big IF London – June 2013

On Saturday 8 June 2013, tens of thousands of people gathered in Hyde Park for the Big IF London rally. They were there to make a massive noise in demanding that G8 leaders – meeting in Northern Ireland on 17-18 June 2013 – take action to tackle global hunger and save the lives of millions.

Speakers on the day included Bill Gates and Danny Boyle amongst others…

Here are some video and photo highlights of the event.

The next event took place on the 15th June in Belfast, where the G8 leaders meeting was held. Lets pray and hope that the clear message sent to the G8, from people of all ages and from all parts of society, is taken on board in word and action.

The IF response summary to G8 session was:

Sally Copley, Enough Food For Everyone IF spokesperson, said:

“Today’s G8 tax deal is a step in the right direction, but it also leaves major unfinished business.”
