Exclusive Release of New Song By Anti-Flag


The political band Anti-Flag has given Afterdowningstreet.org the exclusive release of the unreleased song "Depleted Uranium Is A War Crime" from Anti-Flag's upcoming release "For Blood and Empire."

Listen here: Depleted Uranium Is a War Crime. Here are the lyrics.

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.

Listen also to Anti-Flag's The Press Corpse. This song is about the Downing Street Minutes. Here are the lyrics.

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."

What the hell are you all thinking? Wait until the 2 million saddam documents are released... you and your whole group are done... have a great time in your last few weeks of thinking that you are doing something to help the democtratic party when in reality you are hurting the few good ones like Joe Lieberman ... amazing....

Hey, you guys are fuckin awsome. i llisten to all your songs and i acctually understand what your saying and its totally fucked up that peopel think bush is doing a good thing. I personally hate the government and George himself because i have a brother whose in the army in iraq right now and i dont like it one bit. i think its a fucking waste of time to send more troops over there. bush might think he's all high and mighty but hes so fucking stupid, he doesn't relise that bombing other people and causing a big war wont bring fuckin peace. I love you guys and keep the band together i enjoy and updates. -Stephanie.

Anti-Flag is my favorite political band, hands down. They've been working for political and social justice on a wide array of issues dealing with human rights, peace and justice for over a decade and they've never let what's fashionable dictate what they're about. They're one of the few bands that didn't change their message to "support the President" after 9/11. They got a huge amount of flack for it at the time but everything they said the Bush Regime would try to do by exploiting 9/11 has, sadly, come to pass.

I've been lucky enough to meet the guys in Anti-Flag on several occassions through mutual friends and have found them to be really funny, genuine, down to earth people. They're some of the nicest guys you'll ever meet; certainly they're some of the nicest guys I've ever met. If I have a choice between supporting rawk stars or people who I think are genuine, caring people, the sort of people I like to hang out with, it'll be Anti-Flag every time.

I can't wait for album to released. This is what punk is all about. Anti-Flag is a voice of reason in a time where corperatism and right wing propaganda rule. Anti-Flag has the truth on its side, they never bought the lies of this administration. While everything Cheney has said in the past five years has been utterly wrong. AF shoots straight, unlike that Dick who is the VP.

This song will probably become #1 on Al Jazeera and result in a dirty bomb in Manhattan some day .. then and only then will they realize that the anti-DU movement is a bunch of scientific know nothings who mean harm, not well being for the United States. Some of them may have served briefly in the US Armed services like the phony "warrior" Doug Rokke, but all of them are more in love with themselves than they are with their country.

How Blind do you have to be to realize that this pro-war administration is not helping us in the least. Not once have they contributed to American well being, but instead towards their greedy goals in the middle east... I wonder why we're in Iraq if they didnt threaten us.. it might be because they're in the top 10 list of leading oil producers... hmm. and maybe we're targeting Iran as a nuclear threat now because they fall into that list as well (sense a pattern Roger?)

They can't stand when someone stands up to them. That's why they troll these boards. The secret is out! Keep up the good work.

A few weeks ago I set up a BBS focussed directly on depleted uranium. My rational for setting it up is explained on the site. I was only able to spend a few days trying to promote it before getting caught up in other responsibilities. But it's still there, and anyone can start using it or trying to make it better know. It shows up in Google now, ranking first for the search terms: "depleted uranium discuss bbs"

Even stopping by to register will help give legitimacy for this desperately needed forum to discuss depleted uranium. Please help out. I'm serious about the need. Just try to find a decent online discussion of DU. I don't think there is one. That's why I made the site.
