LENNON FOR AMNESTY

From www.kintera.org:

Noise for a New Generation

Make Some Noise is a global campaign by Amnesty International that mixes music, celebration and action to protect individuals wherever freedom, justice and equality are denied.

Thanks to an extraordinary gift from Yoko Ono – the recording rights to "Imagine" and John Lennon's entire solo songbook - we are harnessing the power of music to inspire a new generation to celebrate and stand up for human rights.

The launch of Make Some Noise - set for December 10, International Human Rights Day - will see the release of a bundle of exclusive singles from the Black Eyed Peas, The Cure, Snow Patrol and The Postal Service. This first bundle of singles will be followed in early 2006 by the release of an array of new versions of iconic John Lennon tracks from top artists, including Avril Lavigne.

Our aim is to attract one million new supporters worldwide. We're not here to talk about the past, tug on the heartstrings or show images of suffering. We're here to make a positive impact on our world and collectively raise our voices to make as much noise as we can for human rights.
