we want to ask maybe you like to do s.th. in your place and support this grassroots artist community?
In the USA, Canada, Berlin, Tokyo and Warszawa so called soundstrikes and wordstrikes are taking place
supported by musicians, bands, painters, graffiti artists, interllectuals, writers and others who speak out against
racism, wars and social injustice.
The movement was started in the USA.by Alto Arizona and Soundstrike Arizona
In April the government of Arizona passed SB1070 (Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act ) into law.
Since then, 20 cities across the US have passed official boycotts of the state of Arizona,
helping to galvanize a renewed national immigrants rights movement.
Artists from across the USA call for a boycott against the new discriminatory anti immigration laws.
They rejct to perform in Arizona and states that introduced the same law.
They support Soundstrike with their names, give solidarity concerts etc.
Soundstrike is supported by civil-rights and peace organisations and by personalities like
Noam Chomsky und Salman Rushdie and many others.
Filmmaker Michael Moore supported Soundstrike in a CNN interview.
We would appreciate your support and call on all musicians, artists, clubs and the surrounding european communities
to support this cause in Berlin and other cities around the world.
