    ActionAid's Get on Board campaign had a lively launch in Johannesburg last week, spearheaded by a Johannesburg to G8 bus. The campaign is to make sure that the leaders of the world's most industrialised countries (G8) hear the concerns of African people at the summit in Scotland in July. The bus left Johannesburg last week and will visit South Africa, Mozambique, Malawi, Tanzania, and Kenya on its 12 000 km journey to Scotland. On its way, it will collect messages from African people to the world leaders who will be discussing ways of ending poverty in Africa.
