Nelson Mandela’s Speech

Nelson Mandela made a very good speech in Trafalgar Square today, in an effort to galvanise young people. For me, the key passage in this speech is this:

Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings.

Please be a part of the 2005 Campaign to Make Poverty History. And you can show your support by buying a white wristband here. As Mandela said today:

Make Poverty History in 2005. Make History in 2005. Then we can all stand with our heads held high.
