As part of the warm up for a forthcoming music track / compilation CD, involving some Famous Musicians, in support of Gary McKinnon's legal fight against extradition to the USA, there will be a live "sing in" tomorrow at the US Embassy in London, starting at 11am.
You can download the backing track and the lyrics to "Chicago / We can change the world", which have been re-written by Gary's mother, Janis Sharp, with the permission of Graham Nash.
See the previous blog entry David Gilmour to sing on "Chicago" protest song in support of Gary McKinnon for the lyrics.
We are under no illusions that President Barack Obama will be allowed within earshot of any members of the British public during his G20 summit visit, but there will be people in his entourage of advisors, who might be reminded of their own Chicago community politics background.
Hopefully there will be some mainstream media coverage, especially as tomorrow is also the United Nations World Autism Awareness Day.
Date: Thursday 2nd April 2009
Embassy of the United States of America,
24 Grosvenor Square
Media contacts: email info@FreeGary.org.uk for contact names and mobile phone numbers etc.
