a note from larry about green day on american idol...

Wednesday night, Green Day performed as the special guest on American Idol - promoting Instant Karma: The Campaign to Save Darfur , benefiting Amnesty's work.

Their stellar performance broadcast our message - to stand up and speak out for the children, women and men in Darfur - to over 50 million viewers.

And because you have shown your commitment to Amnesty, I thought you might like to see a sneak peek of Green Day's upcoming music video, "Working Class Hero," at http://youtube.com/instantkarma .

The album also features U2, Black Eyed Peas, Snow Patrol, R.E.M., Postal Service, Regina Spektor and more - 23 classic John Lennon songs newly recorded by today's greatest artists on 2 CDs.

This is an exciting time for Amnesty International, and I'm glad you can be a part of the excitement. I'll keep you posted on the latest breaking stories and actions, and together, we will finally put an end to the violence in Darfur.
Thanks so much,

Larry Cox
Executive Director
Amnesty International USA
