Serj Tankian has teamed up with Amnesty International to support the Global Write-A-Thon December 5th through December 14th. When you register to write a letter you’ll get a thank you email with a link to download a free song that Serj wrote especially for the Write-A-Thon called “Fears”. You can listen to a stream of the song here. It will also be available on iTunes soon!
Amnesty International human rights news and its members’ strengths have been the realization of the release of prisoners of conscience and the establishment of justice around the world where it is long overdue. The letter writing campaign has been a vital weapon in this regard. It has kept hope alive for all those unjustly incarcerated and has also kept extra judicial governments in check, including our own.” – Serj Tankian
