Justice Tour


Hey folks,

Wanted to let you know about the Justice Tour, which hits the West Coast this coming week. Tom Morello (aka The Nightwatchman) will be performing shows in Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, with a whole mess of guest performances from folks like Slash, Shooter Jennings, Boots Riley, Steve Earle, Wayne Kramer, Sen Dog, and more.

100% of the proceeds for these shows will go to organizations that house the homeless and feed the hungry in those cities. We have asked each of the organizations how Axis supporters can help them out. So far, our partners in Seattle have asked for concert-goers to donate pairs of clean socks for the homeless. Just bring them to the show, we'll have a place for them. We're waiting to hear back from our LA and SF partner organizations, but in the meantime, I'm sure they wouldn't mind monetary donations.

Here's the quick run-down of the Justice Tour:

On a different topic, there should be plenty of actions this weekend to commemorate the 6th anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq. To find protest locations near you, check out United for Peace and Justice's page here: http://www.unitedforpeace.org/article.php?list=type&type=28.

And finally, if you haven't checked out the revamped Axis of Justice website, you should definitely check it out: www.AxisOfJustice.org.
