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.

(see original article on Activist Post)

(view Bono's interview on MSNBC)

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.

      I think he, along with Monsanto are in it for the money...he doesn't care about the African nation...or he'd be against GMO's and the harm they can cause.
