Special Report: World AIDS Day Observed

In Johannesburg, South Africa, riots broke out outside an AIDS clinic at a rally against AIDS in observance of Worlds AIDS day, which is today, December 1st.

"We must fight AIDS wherever it appears!" shouted one of the protesters. They burned down the clinic and beat up several AIDS patients before police could drive them back with fire hoses.

"Some say one of the biggest problems in Africa is lack of education on how AIDS is spread," says Kalicki Kendala, head of the South African Health Ministry. "That people don't understand how condoms lower your risk of contracting AIDS, and that AIDS is still a stigma. However, here in South Africa, we have a strong education program that teaches people it's a plot by the White owned Pharmaceutical companies, and only they can help us, not condoms or education. Why else would half of our continent have the disease?"

Elizabeth Sanger, granddaughter of Margaret Sanger founder of Planned Parenthood, said "The bigger problem is all these black people having children. The problem is double because not only are they black but they are poor. They should all be sterilized."

Lars Heidelberg, Minister of Universal Health Care in Belgium, had this to say: "We (and other countries with universal health care) have price fixing, and force pharmaceutical companies to sell their products for such a low price here that they have to raise their prices elsewhere to make up the difference. If that means more Africans die, so be it, it's them or us. After all, it's a dog eat dog world out there, especially in Zimbabwe."
