An estimated 10,000 people joined a peaceful demonstration in London on Saturday urging G-8 leaders to keep their promises on combating poverty. Demonstrators lined the Thames and bridges near the Houses of Parliament, capping their event by making three minutes of noise with whistles, mobile phones and other devices. "It's a pretty sad message that we're here saying the same things we said two years ago, and 20 years ago with Band Aid," said anti-poverty campaigner Midge Ure. "This is a gentle reminder to the powers that be that we're still watching," he added.
