Anti-hunger campaign 'If' launches with call for G8 to act

Link to The Guardian

"A coalition of 100 UK development charities and faith groups will on Wednesday launch a major campaign to lobby David Cameron, the prime minister, to use Britain's presidency of the G8 to leverage action on ending global hunger.

The If campaign is the largest coalition of its kind since Make Poverty History in 2005, the last time Britain held the G8 presidency. But this time, organisers are pushing for more radical change. Although pegged around hunger and malnutrition, the campaign focuses more on addressing the underlying causes of hunger, such as 'land grabs', tax avoidance and a lack of transparency over investments in poor countries."
