Our Man in Heiligendamm
My name is Takumo Yamada, and I arrived from Tokyo into Germany on Friday, to work for Oxfam on the G8. This week I need to make sure the Japanese media are covering the G8 Summit and know what is going on. They need to know what the G8’s decisions mean for the millions of people living in poverty – and this is particularly important for the Japanese people as we will be hosting the G8 next year. I’m working from the Oxfam Media Office and from the official G8 Press Centre just near where the summit actually takes place. And I will be spending the week trying to find out as much up-to-the-minute G8 gossip as I can!
Keep an eye out for my blogs in the next few days. As the leaders arrive I will be reporting back, live from the G8 frontline, inside the press centre (hopefully, with lots of juicy gossip from the Summit as events unfold!).
