Let's break down the wall - buy the single today!

On 9 July 2004, the International Court of Justice ruled that the Wall being built by Israel in the West Bank is illegal and should be torn down. Yet 7 years on, the Wall continues to destroy lives - cutting children off from schools, farmers from their land and family members from each other.

 This song represents us, it comes from the heart and it is our voice to you". Jamal Juma’a, Co-ordinator, Stop the Wall, Palestine.
War on Want's John Hilary  says, "War on Want is working with partners in Palestine to break down the Wall and demand justice for communities affected by it. But in order to do that, first we must break the silence on the treatment of Palestinians. That is why we need you to buy the 'Freedom for Palestine' single today. http://www.waronwant.org/index.php?option=com_acymailing&ctrl=url&urlid=120&mailid=65&subid=38823 "

"If we get the song into the charts, the mainstream media and politicians will be unable to ignore its message.

"You need to buy the song before midnight on Saturday 9 July to give us the best chance to get it into the charts. Together let's break the wall of silence on Palestine."
