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