The G8 summit is the annual meeting of the eight richest countries in
the world. Every summer, they meet behind closed doors, with no
published agenda and no publicly available meeting minutes to discuss
policies that affect us all.
Activists and NGOs from around the world have been working for the last

in 25 countries and on Friday, they will be here in Boston.
