I recently uploaded the song of mine “Do They Know It’s G8 Time?” (the first I sang, which together with “The Revolution Starts Now!” I did for the 2005 G8 summit in Scotland): https://soundcloud.com/galaxia/g8-time.
At a time when departments in the Con-Dem government in the UK, including the military, are seriously considering raiding the international aid budget, endorsed by David Cameron (see http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/396413/Raid-on-Britain-s-international-aid-in-bid-to-avoid-budget-cuts for example), when Bono (who co-wrote, with Midge Ure, the song mine is based on) is being attacked and supported (see http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/news/the-martyrdom-of-st-bono-8612464.html) and when we have a new G8 summit in the UK this year, the issue of “making poverty history” is back on the agenda.
This year, it takes place in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, on 17-18 June.
There is a Facebook page about events in London and beyond (particularly 10-14 June) to oppose the summit at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Resist-the-2013-UK-G8-Summit/380692651991802, a page for the summit at https://www.facebook.com/EnniskillenG8Summit and an event to march to the venue in Enniskillen on Monday 17 June at https://www.facebook.com/events/611836385498745 (from Enniskillen library to the venue assembling at 6.30pm). There is also the website https://network23.org/stopg8 (particularly useful for those not on Facebook).
