So many celebrities supporting this cause. Great ad. ONE.

Website encourages joining as the more members they have, the more they can persuade governments to implement changes through advocacy.
Already have over 2.5 million registered.

We campaign for better development policies, more effective aid and trade reform.....ONE is not a grant-making organization and we do not solicit funding from the general public. As we have always said, at ONE, 'we're not asking for your money, we're asking for your voice.'

so far.. as of 10 minutes ago when I registered, target was only 33% of projected goal of 200, 000.

65,800 signers approximately.

Great interactive website.

@Doris Day
Initially I registered at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then One/ Bono email you to thank you & a link to sign the petition.
It's a very basic procedure. Two steps.

I noticed they made a correction on the “One” blog that said not every actor actually said the “F” word. I thought that was nice! I really think they did a great job on this campaign! It explains what’s happening in a short blurb yet gets people involved and thinking about the issue without having to give money… some people do not have the means to do so right now… But they can sign the petition! Kudos to all involved and One.org!

Hah! "Banned" by TV watchdog:

From rapid tv news

Ad watchdog bans Bono charity ad

Editor ©RapidTVNews | 09-10-2011

Antipoverty campaign group One International has fallen foul of UK advertising rules with its latest campaign “The F Word – Famine is the Real Obscenity”.

The charity, founded by U2 frontman Bono, has been informed by Clearcast, the body responsible for the pre-transmission examination and clearance of UK TV ads, that the ad which aims to focus the world's attention on the famine and food crisis in the Horn of Africa has broken of the UK’s advertising rules.

Specifically Clearcast says that the ad—hosted at ONE's YouTube channel and which features contributions from George Clooney, Annie Lennox, Bill Nighy, Thandie Newton, Kristin Davis, Ewan McGregor, Idris Elba, Colin Farrell and Bono himself among others— is currently in breach of Rule 7 of the BCAP Code which imposes a blanket prohibition on “political” advertising on. [sic]

Any UK broadcaster that carries an ad in breach of the rules on political advertising faces potential statutory sanction by telecoms and broadcast regulator Ofcom which could include a fine or revocation of licence. The ad is being shown in France and the US.

In a statement, Clearcast said: “These rules ensure that ads aren’t being broadcast by bodies whose objects are wholly or mainly political. ONE appears to be caught by this rule as they state that part of their raison d’être is to pressure political leaders. It also appears that a number of the claims are made in the version of the ad that we have seen are directed towards a political end, which is again against the rules.”

However this stance was rejected by the charity. Commented Europe Director of ONE Adrian Lovett: "We think it is completely wrong and absurd that this advert has been banned from TV in the UK. ONE is not a political party and we have no political affiliation. We recognise the purpose of the broadcasting code is to keep political propaganda off British television, but our ad highlights the desperate plight of 750,000 people in east Africa who the UN warns could die before the end of the year. Unless we keep the spotlight on this crisis and the need for urgent action, those people will be forgotten. Who can object to that message? We are challenging this decision and hope the broadcasters will reconsider."

Clearcast has pointed out that out that ad was not actually “banned” and said that it was in discussions with ONE to see if there is any way that the apparent legal hurdles can be overcome and the ad cleared.

Never heard anything so ridiculous in my life. Honestly, there are so many ads, I'm sure even in the UK, that subtily challenge the political entities of the world. Let's face it, the political entities are so wide spread and individual, they could easily be influenced by any ad, whether commercial or "public service". After all, as hard as it may be to fathom, politicans are people, too. Laughing

Hi Sisieq

Have merged this with the original post. Took me a while to find it because it was already on the second page of the 'news' section!
