BOYCOTT U2 & BONO - DON'T BUY THEIR MUSIC OR MERCHANDISE UNTIL BONO STEPS DOWN FROM SPEAKING PUBLICALLY ON ENVIRONMENTAL, ECONOMIC & POLITICAL ISSUES!
U2's lead singer Bono (Paul David Hewson) has supported many causes over the years, most issues of which, he is not qualified to be a spokesperson for & he also is personally profiting from doing this.
Now he is not only spreading misinformation on poverty & how to help the starving children in Africa, but he is also encouraging people to follow the G8 "solutions" which will lead to doing more harm to the environment & not improve poverty at all.
The African nations are being manipulated by major corporations & governments to follow join the world powers to become "rich" & independent by exploiting the Environment & resources, instead of developing sustainable, ecofriendly systems for agriculture & economic success.
Bono is an advocate for "The Grow Africa Partnership" via the US Government's "The New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition" with the US Government & their “Global Agricultural Development” plan - which will use Monsanto Inc. & their GM (Geneticaly Modified) crops, their highly toxic pesticides & an unsustainable agricultural system of mass monoculture.
He is also ignoring the mass movement of eco-friendly solutions to the world's problems - by supporting the Oil & Mining industries, encouraging the African nations to solve their problems by entering the market by focussing on producing more Oil & Minerals. This is an ignorant method which will only cause more problems to the people & the environment alike.
This a seriously maligned, sanctimonious use of his profile, which was built as a singer in a Rock/Pop Band.
BONO IS NOT A SCIENTIST, ECONOMIST, NOR A POLITICIAN & HAS NO PLACE AS A SPOKESPERSON ON THESE ISSUES!
Bono is ignoring the real URGENT needs of the Ecosystem & in his so-called pursuit of feeding the "starving children of Africa" only will result in more dire consequences.
His use of his profile built by music fans who like him as a singer in a pop/rock band is a serious misuse of power & is a sign of a deep seeded psychological disorder like megalomania - he must be STOPPED!
Please BOYCOTT U2 & THEIR MUSIC & MERCHANDISE until he steps down from this rediculous & harmful political profile he keeps building without any real support from anyone other than corporations who are developing systems of power & produce GM foods & crops that have been outlawed in many countries around the world.
