First off visist these websites:
www.one.org
www.live8live.com

Secondly, Live 8 is the largest concert in the world, consisting of ten concerts in 9 different countries (The one I went to pulled a crowd of over 1 mill. people), largest text message rally, and largest TV audience for a concert. What it also is, more importantly, is to show the leaders of the G8 countries (UK, USA, Japan, Germany, Italy, France, Russia, and Canada) to pledge a certain amount of money to "Make poverty history". All the money made during the 10 concerts around the globe goes towards making an end to ppoverty, as well as the billions of dollars pledged by the G8.
List of all the concerts:
Philly
London
Berlin
Rome
Versailles (Paris)
Tokyo
Johannasburg
Toronto
Moscow (?)
And another in UK


From June 6th to June 8th the G8 Leaders are going to meet in scotland and discuss poverty, and we will see if they pledge.
