In Northern Ireland heads of state of the world's eight biggest economies are meeting in Enniskillen today to discuss major security and economic issues. Russia and the US have declared that they will discuss issues in Syria along with their counterparts from the UK, Canada, Japan, Italy, Germany and France. Hundreds of protesters are expected to descend outside the talks to push the world leaders to discuss hunger issues. RFI spoke to Haidee Swanby, one campaigner who says that the G8 isn't dealing with hunger in Africa, they're just pawning the issue off on giant agri-business firms.
