live 8

When I blogwalking through Joi Ito's blog, something caught my attention. There's a "movement" in the blogosphere to help the campaign Make Poverty History. On their site, they said that "It's a chance for ordinary people to call on world leaders at this year's G8 summit and tell them to put a stop to the needless deaths of 30,000 children every single day." For your information, the G8 summit mentioned will be held on July 6th, 2005 in Scotland. For me, this is quite extraordinary for us in the "virtual world", the blogosphere to be able to participate in something big such as the G8 summit. Thanks to Technorati and Live 8.

I don't know if this will work, but I always interested in the issue of helping developing countries. I just hope that my participation in this campaign may help, even for a bit, and may the voice of the blogs will be heard.

live 8 is to my mind a cynical publicity stunt. no money raised is going to africa, and although Blair is convinced to help, Bush isn't and never will be as he is a redneck with less intelligence than a grapefruit.

I have once think like you do, and maybe I have some of it left in me, and maybe you are right. But this is the least I can do, and I barely made an effort to did this. So, it's nothing to lose for me, and a lot of hopes and dreams to gain.

Why we have to 'make poverty history'? Isn't that 'poverty always be a part of history'? ;p
