Bono Says He Fled From Angry Protestors In Germany

U2 rocker Bono has revealed that he fled from a mob of rowdy protestors during a recent trip to Germany. The renowned activist has championed the "Make Poverty History" campaign, but he said that German protestors turned the slogan against him.

"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," he told the UK's Guardian. "They thought I was peddling this idea of a supplicant Africa, which could not be further from the truth."

According to the rocker, however, the incident just proves that he's raising awareness for the cause.

"So we're doing something right," he said. "We're annoying capitalists in Africa and anti-capitalists in Europe. But I think the U2 audience have turned out to be incredibly subtle in their understanding. We have a relationship now with our audience that exists outside the media."
