Early this morning, ACT UP activists dropped a giant banner on a major billboard in Philadelphia to demand that George W. Bush take a stand against high drug prices that, they say, result in the deaths of millions of people with HIV in Africa and worldwide. The banner read: "BUSH AND DRUG COMPANY GREED KILLS: GENERIC AIDS DRUGS FOR AFRICA NOW!"

Guest:

  • Julie Davids, a member of Philadelphia ACT-UP and was one of the participants in the action.
