A number of Oxfam’s high profile ambassadors, including actors Scarlett Johansson, Colin Firth, Kristin Davis, and Bill Nighy are calling on G8 leaders to urgently respond to global poverty challenges, starting with a boost in funds for climate change, the food crisis and development aid.

The 34th G8 Summit, which is taking place until the 9th, is a gathering of Germany, France, Britain, Italy, Japan, the United States, Canada and Russia. In a letter drafted by the Oxfam ambassadors, the group remarked “The Millennium Development Goals that were set out in 2000 were chosen because they were ambitious, but also because they were realistic and achievable. The current delays in meeting these commitments are a disgrace.”

Actor Bill Nighy is truly no stranger to these proceedings — both personally and professionally. His 2005 movie, The Girl in the Cafe, features a love story that revolves around the G8 Summit in Reykjavík, Iceland. He’s currently in attendance at this year’s summit to make sure the letter is delivered.

Unfortunately, there appears to be a typo in the letter we received a link to. One sentence simply ends with “Failure to address these issues risks undermining much of the progress that has been made since Japan’s Presidency of”

Hmmm…obviously, the overall point of the letter is clear, but let’s hope the final version read a bit better.
