download for peace

Here's something fun and easy you can do to help support military resistance to the occupation of Iraq. Many, many thanks to Campaigner (and friend of wmtc) David Heap for making this possible.

"I'm Putting Down My Gun Now" is a song written by Lionel Lodge, a London, Ontario-based musician, after he heard personal stories of war resisters. Lodge recorded the song with some other London musicians, using donated studio time and volunteer technicians. He is generously donating the proceeds from sales to the London War Resisters Support Group.

You can hear a sample here.

Each download costs only $0.99, and net proceeds after distribution go to support the great work done by the London chapter of the War Resister Support Campaign.

Thanks for the post, L-girl. Lionel (http://lionellodge.com/) actually hails from Port Dover, Ontario -- where is M.P.is the infamous and inaccessible Minister of Deportations, Diane Finley (at least for now... that could of course change October 14!).

BUT this just in! Lionel and the Dodeldogs will be appearing live at the Day of Action for Resisters in London this Saturday (1 pm in Victoria Park), performing "Putting Down My Gun Now" live.

Hopefully we will get rid of Finley and her government after the elections...
