Bruce Springsteen says he would like to see more U.S. support for national liberation movements.
Springsteen, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for the Human Rights Now Concert, made his remarks at a news conference Tuesday with other international rock stars, including Sting, Peter Gabriel and Tracy Chapman.
Springsteen said U.S. foreign policy "does not reflect the basic decency of the American people nor does it participate enough in the struggle for democracy in the world."
"I would like to see the next American president visit Africa and South and Central America and learn to respect and value the different cultures of the world. I would like to see the next president offer more support to national liberation movements," he said.
The 15-nation music tour was organized to support Amnesty International's campaign to promote the 40th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The last two concerts will be in Argentina.
