Exclusive Release of New Song By Anti-Flag
Anti-Flag wants you to take action while you're here and write your member of Congress while listening and learning! (The interview segments in the song are from an interview that Justin Sane of Anti-Flag did with Washington State Congressman Jim McDermott, the leader in Congress who is pushing for the study of DU!)
McDermott has introduced a bill in Congress, H.R. 2410, The Depleted Uranium Munitions Study Act, which calls for in-depth studies to be conducted on DU and its effects on the health of those exposed to it. Ask Your Congress Member to Cosponsor. / Learn more about DU. / Keep Reading for more music.
Justin Sane of Anti-Flag said: "Anti-Flag wrote the song 'The Press Corpse' about the Downing Street Memo and the fact that the mainstream corporate media did a shameful job in fact checking the half-truths and lies they reported in the days leading up to the illegal US-led invasion of Iraq. In failing miserably as The People’s watchdog of the powerful, the mainstream media must be held accountable along with the Bush Regime for the horrific tragedy that is present day Iraq. As the war continues 'The Press Corpse' continue their shoddy and lazy work- all but failing to report on the harmful effects that this war will have on our society and the world for generations to come. Depleted Uranium is our Agent Orange and it will impact people’s lives for decades. We can not wait for the media, we must take action and let others know about depleted uranium as quickly as possible. We are excited to work with the After Downing Street Coalition to release the song, 'Depleted Uranium Is A War Crime.' We do so in order to call this issue to the attention of the American people and to force Congress to investigate the silent and invisible killer that the pentagon is unleashing on the people of Iraq, US service men and women, and the world, through their deployment of Depleted Uranium munitions."
