. . . in support of establishing the right of students to privacy from military recruiters.  The progressive organization, True Majority, founded by Ben Cohen of Ben and Jerry's, is giving away free downloads of the anti-war song "Twenty" by Grammy-Award winning Robert Cray.  It's about a young man who joins the Army after 9/11 to protect our country, is sent to Iraq where he discovers what the occupation of Iraq is really about, and is killed in action.

You'll have to join True Majority and you'll be asked to participate in the campaign regarding student rights.  No cost to join.  As a member, you'll get occasional e-mails on similar progressive topics.  Click here

This is a great song. I wonder how many songs will need to be written about this hideous war before the country gets it? How many had to be written about Vietnam? How many protests? How many bodybags?

Check out Bruce Springsteen's single Devil's and Dust for a soldier's story about having to decide in a nanosecond whether to shoot Iraqis nearing a checkstop. www.brucespringsteen.net
