Last weekend was the annual Global Day of Action when people all over the world Stand Up and Take Action to end global poverty, and at Sunday’s U2 concert in Norman, Oklahoma, USA, 50,000+ U2 fans stood up to show their support.
They joined millions of people around the world – a Guinness Book of World Records 116 million stood up last year! – to show solidarity with the world’s poorest people and demand action on meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of halving poverty and disease worldwide by 2015.
Check out ONE members Standing Up at the show, after a long day of taking action against global poverty and signing up more than 2,000 new ONE members:
