Hey all,
Seeing as the Live Aid 2 Concert (or Live Eight) is coming up soon and of course the G8 conference of industrial nations in Scotland, I think Ozzu should place some sort of Ad on its side encouraging people to go the make poverty history site or to encourage webmasters to advertise on their site for the campaign.
This site must receive hundreds, even thousands of views a day and it really would help raise awareness to the suffering and disgusting conditions people have to live in.
We are lucky to have the technology we are currently using right this second, people in Ethiopa consider themselves lucky when they find a shack to live in and scraps to feed their starving children.

Even if the Ads are only placed in the run up to the G8 summit and Live 8 concert, it really could make a difference.
Im sure there are Ads on the makepovertyhistory.org website and other similar sites.

Its certainly a point worth considering.

I do agree with you. However i somehow dont imagine it will happen.

If you visit band websites like http://www.keanemusic.com/ you will notice at the top right on the site logo they have a little strip crossing the banner with a small link to the make poverty history. Perhaps something like that is more appropriate.

However, as i say, i dont think anything will come of this unfortunatly. Lets support this cause our own little way, i dont think we need a website to do this as i feel some people may not care too much for this for whichever reason and to go onto a site that supports it could make them feel uneasy for whatever reason.

Why should Ozzu enter the business of telling people what to do with their lives?

Strike back at Mugabe
Hundreds of thousands of Zimbabwean people have been evicted from their homes by Mugabe’s police and then those houses bulldozed and some children inside crushed to death.
Image
Not only that but other African governments shamefully refuse to condemn this outrage, (BBC: Africa rejects action on Zimbabwe) the latest in a series of attacks on the freedoms of the people of Zimbabwe.

Well if we are really going to make poverty history in Africa then we need to make rotten dictators like Mugabe history too.
Image
It is time to defend the people by striking back at this dictator.
Image
Mugabe did not heed the warning message of suspension from the Commonwealth. So be it.

There is only one language that fascist dictators like Mugabe understand - the language of military force.

Britain and America should give heart to the defenceless people of Zimbabwe and rally the opposition to Mugabe by leading limited military strikes against Mugabe.

This could take the form of missile strikes against Mugabe’s palaces, hopefully catching him at home. Let’s see if Mugabe is killed when his house is knocked down. If he survives that then we could follow up with more comprehensive air strikes if necessary.

Hopefully if we strike back at Mugabe then that will give heart to the African people to fight back against this ruthless dictator.

Well of course it would be nice to get prior Commonwealth and UN backing for such strikes. However, we have seen with ousting Saddam that it is necessary for leading nations to act anyway and pick up the legal pieces afterwards.

Oh and we should not be welcoming complicit African heads of state, like Thabo Mbeki, the South African “president”, to G8 in Scotland either.
Image
Friends of Mugabe, like Mbeki, should not be welcomed by those who wish to make poverty history.

We should thank Kate Hoey MP for speaking out so bravely on the Zimbabwean crisis. BBC: Blair pressed on Zimbabwe stance
Image
Of course, the UK royalist, fascist police state should stop the deportations of Zimbabwean asylum seekers. (BBC: UK Zimbabweans on hunger strike)

I don't know if that is a good idea. Assassination lies a bit outside the scope of webmaster forums.
