‘Hey! Ayatollah! Leave Those Kids Alone!’

Two Iranian brothers living in exile in Canada have a band called Blurred Vision. They recently received permission from Pink Floyd founding member Roger Waters to re-make “Another Brick in the Wall” as a protest against Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the regime in Iran.

The video features footage of the post-election crackdown against student protesters, and also features a woman who bears some resemblance to Neda Agha-Soltan.

I read something about this in the late spring/early summer but this morning is the first time I’ve seen the video, which is available as an iTunes download. Proceeds from each sale go to Amnesty International.

I’ve had issues in the past with Roger Waters continually putting Reagan, Thatcher and Bush on par with real evil in the world, as well as Amnesty’s not-so-subtle accusations that a US that has certainly done it’s share of watering the seeds of freedom around the world with the blood and sweat of heroes is itself a human rights nightmare. However, in this instance, the outrage is well-directed, so credit where credit is due to all involved parties on this one:
