Sting is onstage, singing "Every Step You Take" while the screens in the background show the faces of G8 leaders. Fantastic.

[livejournal.com profile] inannajones and I are intending to spend a good chunk of the day in front of the Live 8 concert being broadcast from Hyde Park in London. We've also got laptops here, so expect a fair bit of posting.

One of the major parts of Live 8 is the petition. Sign Here.

I'd like Live 8 to make a difference, and it's having the effect it's supposed to here at least - I'm thinking about the issues it's raising, poverty and global economies. There are some rumblings going on in the back of my head about the notion of anti-globalisation movement, which strikes me as a set of concepts that isn't going anywhere. I'd like to know what it's about before I dismiss it altogether. So tell me about it, please?

Good grief, Bill Gates just walked on stage...
