Roger Waters and Blurred Vision launch 'Hey Ayatollah' video campaign Print E-mail

Last February Canadian band Blurred Vision released a version of Another Brick In The Wall to support the youth and freedom movement in Iran, and to help galvanise the international community to stand in solidarity with the youth of Iran. Approved by Roger Waters, the cover got much international attention, and included Roger's own recording of the new refrain.

The band have now launched a video campaign about Iran in conjunction with Amnesty International. "Hey Ayatollah" is a collaborative video petition, and encourages viewers to submit their own ten-second video clips of themselves joining in the Hey Ayatollah Leave Those Kids Alone! call. More details through this link. Fans are also being encouraged to support Amnesty's Iran petition to demand freedom of expression and an end to executions in Iran.

Head of Art For Amnesty Jo Metcalf said: "Music and art have a unique power to bring people together and inspire them to take action. Please join Blurred Vision, Roger Waters and Amnesty International in adding your voice to our campaign".
