Would you like to be ruled under an oppressive government?
Would you like to live under poverty?
Would you like people you know and care die needlessly?
So why should the millions of people in Africa go through that? Don’t just throw money at the problem, coz it ain’t gonna help. Individuals like us, can’t do much with just throwing money at the problem. Small groups can’t do much, well, not unless you can buy the world. Yes, that’s what Africa needs right now, the 8 (or so) powerful people from the 8 most powerful countries in the world. They as a collective can do something about it. They can erase the debt that can help Africa. Sure, it might not fix it in a blink of an eye, but it can be a great start. It definately is a long walk. They can allow us to start the crawl to make poverty a thing of the past.
So, if you haven’t done so yet, why not go to the LIVE 8 website and add your name and petition the G8 leaders to do something about it.
You know you don’t want to go through it, so why let others go through it?
Africa needs you. Listen. Be human. Care.
