Justice, not charity, for the poor

“I, for one, am taking off my suit,” said Bono, speaking at the launch of the United Nations’ Human Development Report on poverty. And a million hearts went pitter patter. Yeah, baby!

The singer promised a noisy and aggressive campaign if rich countries do not make a move to help end world poverty.

He continued to say it made him ill to hear the issues discussed as ‘charity’: “We never argued debt relief as a charity issue, we argued it as a justice issue.”
