Live 8

The Live 8 International day of concerts is to rally support to petition the G8 summit, the worlds leaders, to do more to alleviate world poverty.

From the website:

Every single day, 30,000 children die, needlessly, of extreme poverty.

On July 6th, we finally have the opportunity to stop that shameful statistic.

8 world leaders, gathered in Scotland for the G8 summit, will be presented with a workable plan to double aid, drop the debt and make the trade laws fair. If these 8 men agree, then we will become the generation that made poverty history.

But they'll only do it if enough people tell them to.

PLEASE if you havent already, pop over to the website and add your name to the petition. Right now that's all it takes.
