Bono chased by angry anarchists in Germany
Irish rocker Bono feared for his life when he was chased down a street by a group of angry anarchists in Germany. The U2 frontman, who has long campaigned on political issues and global problems, was in Heiligendamm in 2007 for the 33rd G8 summit meeting of world leaders when he was cornered by a number of protesters opposed to his presence at the event. The group was supporting the 'Make Bono History' campaign, which aims to "remove Bono from the public-eye and restore a sense of dignity to mankind", and the singer was terrified when the placard-waving demonstrators started chasing him. He tells Britain's Guardian newspaper, "I was chased down the street in Germany by a bunch of anarchists at the G8 summit, wielding placards and shouting 'Make Bono history!' - which even as I was running for my life I thought was a pretty good line."
