  1. 50 billion in aid
    more talk of wiping off another 30 billion in debt as they have already wiped off 50 billion now.
    Was an interesting read and one my wife has been saying all along that aid sometimes can backfire because it does not reach the areas most deperately needed which is sad.
  2. Geldof .. "The G8 leaders have it within their power to alter history. They will only have the will to do so if tens of thousands of people show them that enough is enough.

    By doubling aid, fully cancelling debt, and delivering trade justice for Africa, the G8 could change the future for millions of men, women and children."
  3. By cancelling the third world debt all it will do is make it easier for the dictators that run most of the third world countries and are the reason they are still in the third world anyway.
