Subject:   Re: [GlobalRevolutionMedia] Musical coalition in solidarity
 

Tom Morello, formerly of Rage Against The Machine and currently in a Woody

Guthrie-esque phase with The Watchmen was just in town playing The City

Winery. He, I imagine, would be a great musician candidate to couple with

this cause, performance. I have no contact info, just saying.
