Event Details

IF Scotland Plays Its Part - join our journey to the G8 – 15th June

Cairnryan to Belfast

 

One in eight people go to bed hungry every night and two million children die from malnutrition every year. Yet the world produces enough food for everyone.


In June, the world’s most powerful leaders will meet in the UK at the G8.


No one should be left to go hungry.IF we fulfil our existing commitment on aid, IF small farmers have the land they need to grow food, IF we tackle tax dodging so governments receive the money they need to feed their citizens and IF companies and governments are transparent in their dealing there can be enough food for all.

 

This is a big opportunity to tackle hunger. 2013 can be the beginning of the end of hunger IF we make it happen.

 On Saturday 15 June, the IF campaign ramps up in Belfast, where thousands of supporters will gather for the Big IF Belfast event.

This will be an important moment in the campaign as it’s two days before world leaders gather for the G8 summit in Lough Erne. This is an amazing opportunity to stand with the people of Northern Ireland and across the UK to show our support for the campaign and help tackle the scandal of hunger.

 IF G8 Day Trip

IF will be making the journey from Scotland with buses leaving at around 8am from Edinburgh and Glasgow on Saturday 15th June. The journey will be full of activities which will become part of our action, ensuring we take a strong voice from Scotland. You will learn more about the campaign issues, watch campaign films and meet with those involved in the IF campaign.

Join our journey to G8 and help strengthen our messages to the G8 leaders.

The Big IF Belfast event starts at 2pm and will feature a family-friendly programme of music, comedy and inspirational speakers. This will be our chance to show the leaders of the G8 that now is the time for change.


Ticket costs outlined above provide a suggested donation which includes bus and ferry travel to the event in Belfast.
