OT: Thousands rally at White House to urge Obama to make HIV/AIDS a priority

Thousands of people gathered at the White House recently to urge the new administration to prioritize HIV/AIDS and put an end to HIV epidemic in the United States and across the world. Most of the marchers were black and HIV positive, many wearing hats and holding signs inscribed with the word "Hope" with the Barack Obama presidential campaign logo fused with the AIDS ribbon.

The rally attracted demonstrators from New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, DC. The organizers are calling on President-Elect Barack Obama to help people living with HIV and AIDS gain access to affordable housing, Medicare and Medicaid, and to increase funding for needle exchange and other prevention programs.

Yea it's definitely time to get this thing under control at least. These things won't be ignored, but we will have to be vocal about them for fair attention.

Hope isn't going to cure HIV/AIDS.

Hope and compassion will certainly help!

Compassion, and hope, is certainly something the AIDS epidemic hasn't had the past eight years.

The Bush administration spent tons of money supporting the AIDS cause in Africa.

Its not a political thing.

They aren't talking about AIDS in Africa. They are rallying for support of those suffering from HIV/AIDS here in the USA --- in Florida, in Georgia.
