Live 8: Bono's Remarks Before 'One'

Live 8, July 02, 2005
By: Bono


[This is the text of Bono's comments before "One" at the Live 8 concert in London today.]

So, this is our moment. This is our time. This is our chance to stand up for what's right. We're not looking for charity. We're looking for justice. We can't fix every problem, but the ones we can, we must.

3,000 Africans, mostly children, die every day of a mosquito bite. We can fix that. We can fix that. 9,000, 9,000 people dying every day of a preventable, treatable disease like AIDS. We've got the drugs. We can help them. We've got the drugs. Dirty water, death by dirty water. Well, we can dig wells.

If you want to join us, go down on the streets of Edinburgh, or anywhere else. Text us. Call us. There's phones, they're dangerous little devices.

Eight of the most powerful men on earth are meeting on a golf course in Scotland. There's a lot a stake. We have a message for them: This is your moment, too. Make history, by making poverty history.
