Black Eyed Peas Freedom Campaign

Has the whole world gone mad? Yes!

You know how I know?

Just recently it was announced that the world's most benign group of breakdancing clothes-horses is advocating a cause. The Black Eyed Peas recently performed at a concert in Thailand to support the release of Burmese Nobel Peace Prize winner, Aung San Suu Kyi. The concert, which is part of the Freedom Campaign initiative ( a joint project between Human Rights Action Center and U.S. Campaign for Burma) will also be simulcast in Burma where the author is under house arrest for promoting a democratic agenda. the simulcast marks the second time the people of Burma will ever be party to a concert calling for the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and the first time it will be broadcast from a neighboring nation.

Hmm, I think Art Brut's Eddie Argos has got it all wrong, I think The Black Eyed Peas will write the song that makes Israel and Palestine get along.
