(MTV) Bono and Brad Pitt brought their star power to the kickoff of the One Campaign on Wednesday, calling on people to come together to fight the global crises of AIDS, hunger and poverty.

He called upon the young people of today to make the fight for third-world relief their generation's movement, much like the youth of the 1960s fought for civil rights in America.
