Below is the press release:

A world concert for Palestine

"Bono! We appeal to you, and to all the music world, to organize a world concert for Palestine!" So begins an online appeal – addressed to Bono, leader of the rock group U2 – launched by Gazzella, an Italian NGO that helps rehabilitate Palestinian children wounded in Israeli ground and air attacks on Palestinian cities and villages.

"We wondered why the music world has never held a global concert for the Palestinians," said Gazzella president Marina Rossanda, listing the many "humanitarian" events held in the past – from the historic Concert for Bangladesh (1971) and Live Aid

for Ethiopia (1985) to the Freedom Tibet Concert (1997) and the recent 46664 concert to fight AIDS. "We're sure a concert for Palestine would find widespread support among young people around the world – and also among many musicians, starting with Bono himself." (Over the years, Bono has campaigned for numerous causes, including Amnesty International and the Jubilee 2000 project to end Third World debt.)

The appeal is available at http://www.concert4palestine.org in English, Arabic, Hebrew, German, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

Good Bless Bono!
