Anti-Flag: This Is The New Sound – Amnesty International

Amnesty International and Pittsburgh rock band Anti-Flag are working together to raise awareness of indefinite detention. "This is the New Sound" is a new video from Anti Flag and is another example of music and politics working together in a campaign to change policies and practices.

The clip highlights the importance of human rights and whilst taking a more light hearted approach through the use of puppets, seeks to draw attention to the plight of those being held in prison and in particular President Obama's promise to shut down Guantánamo Bay.

Take a look at the clip here:
