(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.
