Bono’s Editorial

“We cannot allow this war, the war on Aids, to go unfinanced and leaderless, and the world’s poor to be left out again…”

The Daily Telegraph has published an impassioned editorial penned by Bono that addresses the need for Britain and the rest of the G8 countries to commit resources to fight AIDS.

His editorial comes just before the G8 summit in Evian, France, where Bono is hoping UK Prime Minister Tony Blair can persuade the world leaders in attendance to treat the AIDS epidemic in Africa as a emergency and to take action.
