TELL US THE TRUTH TOUR

Featuring an all-star cast of musicians such as Billy Bragg, Mike Mills from R.E.M., Boots Riley of The Coup, Lester Chambers, Steve Earle, Michael Be Holden, and The Night Watchman (Tom Morello) this tour links issues of Media Reform to the Global Democracy Movement.

The tour started in Madison, Wisconsin at the first ever National Conference on Media Reform and will head down to Miami, Florida, to join the protests surrounding the undemocratic structures of the FTAA (Free Trade Area of the Americas).

In a time when artistic freedom and the freedom of speech have been under assault by Bush and the Republican Right these artists have come together to denounce massive consolidation of the media by a few corporate interests and are instead promoting the kind of diverse and independent media that ensures a strong democracy.

While the importance of what they are saying canít be stressed enough the music rocks and it is sure to be one of the most eclectic shows youíll ever see.
