Protesters Make U2 Frontman Bono Run For His Life

(Classic Rock) U2 frontman Bono has recalled running for his life from protestors who shouted "Make Bono history" after him. The singer and activist has been a supporter of the Make Poverty History series of campaigns since they began in 2005.

But the slogan was turned on him recently in Germany. He tells The Guardian: "I was chased down the street by a bunch of anarchists wielding placards and shouting 'Make Bono history!' which, even as I was running for my life, I thought was a pretty good line."

In the same week, he says, he was also booed by young entrepreneurs in Tanzania, who believed he was arguing for Africa to be seen as a place in permanent need of charity. Read what he had to say about that.
