    Seeing as an estimated 5 billion should be watching, If they all went to Africa to witness the poverty firsthand. It may get a little more overcrowded.

    The horrible truth is that Afrika's poverty will probably never be countered.

    I mean god, my family was kicked out of Nigeria and forced to surrender five sapphire mines becuase the government didnt like the idea of us taking so much out of Nigeria, the truth was that my grandfather was a very benevolent man and tried to help his workers. Truth is the government dont want the people helped.

    And thats only Nigeria to begin with!

    Even if they do end the debt there will still be corruption.

    Well since you have witnessed it first hand then you obviously undertsand it way more than I do, but do you not think that people trying to stop the corruption and relieve the financial troubles is a really good thing?

    DJK_99 i agree with you, and i feel that live 8 is great, but if the g8 does allow more debt relief and remove trade restrictions, which i greatly hope they do, this must only be done if the countries whose governments will co-operate. I do not feel that the other countries in africa, for example Zimbabwe, even with the horrific suffering should be allowed debt relief because the government will use it for more corruption. Live 8 and the g8 have to work in accordance with countries who want to change, you can only help those who want help.
    Amen to that. That is exactly the point I am trying to make (obviously in a very long winded way, you did a great summary!). And I really feel v v v v strongly about that, and by supporting Live8, I feel I am adding to the pressure put on the G8 to fulfil this. The only thing we can do is to make our voice heard to the G8 people, because they hold the power to make the real difference.

    I dont think giving false hope is fair. Not fair at all.

    Thats a fair point, but i still feel that its worth the effort - attempting to give hope is surely better than giving none at all?

    Bob Geldof was talking about it before the concert started, in Jonathan Ross' bubble (which incidentally is wicked cool, and Jonathan Ross is the BEST person to present this lol)

    But wtf is the point, all this effort could be chanelled into making a difference in the hope of changing the majority of African countries into free, fair, democracys.
