it is a good cause, they will make a shit load of charity money..... but where will it go? where it allways goes? to the rich pollitions in africa, that dont give a fuck about the people, whilst the people have there livly hoods destroyed, there so called leaders drive about in brand new aston martins and mercs and live like kings..... where is the justice in that?

same shit I was saying in Government forum but people weren't listening. And because of this history repeats itself half the time. for example the first Live 8 concert back in 85'. They must haven't tried hard enough otherwise we wouldn't go through this.

the only people wit soul there were the rap artist. they should've had the Wu-Tang in effect

All the rap artists that were/are there suck. As a matter of FACT all artists there could suck my dingleberries.

good cause but i think its a lost cause, its too late to make poverty history and if the world needs to keep revolving there needs to be 3rd world nations so it will have no affect on the big rich nations. so this is actually pointless.

i dont even buy this poverty stuff

i cant imagine how a group of farmers in a fertile land (not to mention the cradle of civilization)

can suddenly go hungry

millet grows in dry land

you can live off millet

PEACE

dont trust it

oh no no no

the purpose is to affect the g8 summit and get the politicians to agree to clear afrikas debt, the corrupt leaders need merking so fair trade and advancement can be made

i dont think its a charity thing, just use the site toi sign a petition to vote for clearing afrikas debts

Didn't they already agree on that?

the G8 leaders wont do anything because the world cannot function with every nation as a modern economical power, then everything would be too expensive and most markets will fail. The western nations and now even china and india will forever keep afrika poor to keep there own interest going according to plan. they wont clear afrikas debts afrika in debt keeps european markets and US markets trading more with each other. Why would they want to allow afrika to trade then the other nations of the world will but farming stuff from the afrikans instead of the western powers.

so its pointless Geldof waisting time

Somebody correct me on this... didn't the G8 leaders already agree to clear Africa's debt?

HANZO
07-02-2005, 05:45 PM
i dont think so

JASPER
07-02-2005, 05:52 PM
To be really honest, I don't give a fuck about poor countries or shitty artists as Bono who get a limo ride back to their 23 million dollar mansion after the concert. I don't give a fuck about anyone but myself and my family and friends

Ronin
07-02-2005, 05:52 PM
nope, not yet...shits in 2 days aint it or a week or something

thats the purpose of this shit

i watched most of it today, was pretty good

i like how snoop said motherfucker about 5000 times before 7pm here, no doubt fags will complain

motherfuck em fa shizzle

LHX
07-02-2005, 06:03 PM

our best music comes from poverty
I'm poverty everyday shit, this ain't nothing new. I don't no why they're so worried now. This is why the government is corrupt, they worry about little shit too much and don't see the bigger picture. So we keep repeating history and then they lie about history. that's why it's called His story. Public Enemy will tell you some shit. But you also gotta listen. Get self and street education to see past this white collar government education. Fuck em.

They already agreed weeks ago to forgive most African country's debt. In case you guys didn't know, the Ethiopian government pocketed all the money from Live Aid in the 80's. All this shit is so fake and pretentious. Why don't these celebrity fags go to poor countries and give money directly. I would go there if I had money. I will go there soon anyway and help in a different way. Nas will visit Egypt where he thinks he's from. He ain't from there. Go to the poor countries where your ancestors are from and help "your people."

Damn I just got back from live 8 here in Canada damn it was ill I got shake DMC hand it was peace. I even enjoyed the rock bands; witch is weird because I hate

But they ware saying like peace in the "free world" haha, they all locked down in the matrix.

In peace,
Sha rock haha.

crastuf
07-02-2005, 09:27 PM
you don't know I define the matrix, but those rock bands weren't too great. Overall it was good. But I don't think they found the purpose themselves. I wish it would help more but I don't think it is. It helped one girl and she looked good too, but it ain't helping enough

What is the fucking big deal to supply food and medicine for poverty stricken area. Who is it hurting, to make sure every child in the world has food, proper medicine so they can have at
least a chance of survival. Why in 200-and-fucking 5 shit remains the same in Africa. We keep advancing in tecgnology and blah blah, we are a mass consumer society, yet there's a certain part of the world that is still suffering. I could never comprehend this shit.

As for the concert, where were artist like Nas, Wu, Ms.Dynamite, Sustem of f The Down, NIN, and other artist from around the world who have powerful message in their music, and been rapping/singing about this situation.

Why would you have pretentious artists like Kanye West, Jay-Z, Destiny Child, Maddonna perform?... Wait a minutes its all about ratings, and seeming imortant. Then, the next time you're talking about "how much money you have" diamonds, and appearing in Lorrea'l commercials/Versace ads

It's a great cause and when they showed the people in Africa and they brought this one girl out who 20 years ago was close to death and now she goes to school and everything......she was beautiful. Everyone their had tears coming down their face.......

JASPER

Way too many people pretend to care and think it will clear their guilty conscience, next day they'll cary on driving their luxious cars around their white picket fence neighborhoods and occupy their so righteous minds with most insignificant things as brand clothing and their fancy little cellphones completely ignoring all the poverty in the city.

Maybe it's because I think that way, I expect others to be that way too, cause I simply can't develop some kind of compassion for people far away I don't know. I have tried to care, but I can't.

I hope the G8 will discus more important things like air pollution and global warming instead.

:fucku: Are you kidding? What a fuckin' rich white liberal thing to say. This is exactly what celebrities think are important issues. Only rich white people have time to think about such trivial bullshit. Poverty is a real issue. Most people don't have the time or money to think about that hippy shit.
