Well the only questions i wanna know is

'Did you see it?'
'Did you like it?'
'Would it change anything?'

As it said on the newspapers

'The World Is Watching'

It would be cool to see some opinions from the PE2K Side

Correction:

'The World Is Watching minus (-) Zenaku'

I never even turned my TV on. What's so special about the show anyways? The fact that it was shown in America also?

Well how it all started:

. Campaign called 'Make Poverty History'

. Bob Geldof(Sp?) makes event called Live 8 to make the top 8 countrys (Includes USA, UK, Japan ect) known as G8 to drop the debt on Africa which is making alot of people homeless and ect.

. About 3 Billion people watched the show in which the Main event (In London) had people like Elton John, Snoop, Madonna ect saying to the G8 To Drop The Debt.

It's much like a protest with a HUGE Concert

It is really sad that it takes a thing like this for people to realize the problems of some of the poorer countries and give some of ther "bling" to the less fortunate. I for one will not be a puppet of MTV and "vote or die" or "make poverty history" I'll do these on my own and I assume most intellignet people would too.

I watched one song, got bored, left.

It was a shameless ripoff of LiveAid 20 years ago, and LiveAid actually helped.
