The five-day UNICEF visit will begin in Addis Ababa on Tuesday 27 May. Geldof will see firsthand the challenges the country faces today, 20 years after he first visited Ethiopia and launched a world-wide campaign to save the East African nation from famine.  

Geldof's visit, facilitated by the UNICEF office in Ethiopia, will enable him to witness the current humanitarian crisis and explore the longer-term development challenges that are compounded by debt and trade disadvantages. He will visit UNICEF relief projects for children, speak with government officials and members of the diplomatic community, and meet with other key humanitarian players. More at: bobgeldof.info

Singer/songwriter/activists Carole King and James Taylor  
joined Representatives Christopher Shays (R-CT) and Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), to reintroduce the Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (NREPA) in Washington, DC on March 5, 2003. For the first time in its 12-year history, the bill is rolling out with over 100 congressional cosponsors. King has been an advocate for NREPA for the past 12 years.  

NREPA will save taxpayers over $245 million in the next ten years and will create 2300 new jobs, which has caught the eye of both Republicans and Democrats. NREPA will protect the bioregion known as the Wild Rockies, spanning five states: Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. This region is home to bison, elk, and grizzly bears that are losing land to roam on due to the subsidizing of logging companies.  

You can make a difference. Get involved in saving your environment. For further information go to: http://www.wildrockiesalliance.org/issues/nrepa/

A Concert For The People - South Africa 
The first list of artists for the Mandela SOS concert has been announced. Appearing at the February 2 event in South Africa are Dave Stewart of The Eurythmics, Queen, Yusuf Islam (formally known as Cat Stevens), Joe Strummer of The Clash, Bono, Baaba Maal, Macy Gray, Nelly Furtado, Jimmy Cliff, Deborah Cox, Ms. Dynamite, Shaggy, Eve, Ludacris, Angelique Kidjo, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Johnny Clegg, Bongo Maffin, Vusi Mahlasela, and Femi Kuti. 

A People's Concert will take place simultaneously at South Africa's Green Point Stadium, alongside the SOS concert at Robben Island - where Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years. The People's Concert will broadcast live footage from the Robben Island event with many artists performing on both stages. Nelson Mandela, host of the event, sent a cry of SOS to the world earlier this month, imploring a global community to address the HIV/AIDS crisis rampant in Africa.  Africa has been hit harder by HIV/AIDS than any other region of the world with more than 17 million dead from the disease and another 28.1 million infected with HIV. Currently, there are 11 million AIDS orphans in Africa and experts say without urgent action there may be more than 25 million by the end of this decade. 

"HIV/AIDS is not only a health issue but has risen to become a human rights crisis," Mandela said. "I am asking each person in every country not to be silent witnesses to this devastation but to answer our SOS by raising both awareness and the vital funds necessary to fight and win against this disease." Tickets to the concert are free and will be distributed by competition or lottery, details of which will be announced. There will be live coverage of the event on mwww.mandelasos.com, as well as a global TV broadcast.
