Facebook Campaign Launched to Support ♫Freedom For Palestine♫ by “OneWorld”

(4 June 2011)  A facebook campaign has been launched promoting Freedom For Palestine.  Already going viral on youtube, the facebook page has reached well over 3000 members in just a few short days.  The new Freedom For Palestine song, and the musicians who formed “OneWorld,” are managing to bring the movement to see a free Palestine firmly into the mainstream.  Not only has Coldplay endorsed it, as well as LUSH cosmetics, but expect more endorsements to come.  You can be a part of making history and join:  http://www.facebook.com/FreedomOneWorld  .  Below is one of the group’s members, Andy Treacy, whose passionate drumbeats make this song unstoppable!  Plan to ask to have your local radio station play it a lot this summer, request your dance clubs to play it, dance to it in your exercise classes!  This has already been declared the summer of making Freedom For Palestine mainstream.

♫Freedom For Palestine♫ by “OneWorld”

So many years of catastrophe, more than six million refugees, it could be you and your family,

Forced from your home and your history
We are the people, and this is our time,
Stand up, sing out, for Palestine
No matter your faith or community, this is a crime against humanity,
Gaza turned into a prison camp, apartheid wall divides the West Bank

We are the people, and this is our time,
Stand up, sing out, for Palestine,
We’ll break down the wall, Freedom for Palestine
Demand Justice for all, Freedom For Palestine
Enough illegal occupation, violence and racial segregation, all religious communities unite,
Freedom is a human right,
We are the people, and this is our time,
Stand up, sing out, for Palestine,
We’ll break down the wall, Freedom for Palestine
Demand Justice for all, Freedom For Palestine
(solo on the Oud)
(rap section) You’re dead, locked by doctrine, blocked like a box you’re locked in, a classroom bombs are dropped in, and the pain is locked in, shame on this brave new world you’re lost in, and the lives it’s costin’, like a toxin, a penetration of hate, generations later still boxed in, children dead cos we’re led by the bigoted, small graves filled instead and I’m sick of it.
We are the people, and this is our time,
Stand up, sing out, for Palestine,
We’ll break down the wall, Freedom for Palestine
Demand Justice for all, Freedom For Palestine(repeat X5)
We are the people, this is our time, unite together,
for justice in Palestine.
This song is going viral on youtube.  It has a very catchy, dance-able beat.
 OneWorld has produced a fantastic hit, with the potential to make it onto top music charts in the U.K.  and elsewhere.  All proceeds support projects in Palestine. It can be ordered on itunes in the U.K.   The song features an all star ensemble of musicians from around the world including Dave Randall, Jamie Catto (1 Giant Leap), Maxi Jazz (Faithless), LSK, Harry Collier (Kubb), Andrea Britton, Sudha (Faithless), Andy Treacy on drums (Faithless/Moby/Groove Armada), Attab Haddad and Joelle Barker.  The simply amazing  Durban Gospel Choir and members of the London Community Gospel Choir make the chorus so beautiful!   Comedian Mark Thomas, rapper Lowkey and poet Michael Rosen appear in the video as well.  Lowkey has also released a video asking his many many fans to support and spread the song!  You can see his video at this link ♫ : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QO6PBDoVLac&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL
