Submit a song that reveals the cold-hearted violence behind today’s high-tech warfare.
Today, U.S.-operated and U.S.-made drones are surveilling and bombing populations throughout the globe – especially the Middle East and South Asia. Governments threaten to use cruise missiles and other high-tech bombs when their geopolitical interests are at stake. Such military technological advantages produce lopsided military conflicts where the overwhelming risk of death is on just one side – or, so it seems. The technologically superior side feels a sense of impunity to kill at will. Meanwhile, arms manufacturers make staggering profits by selling weapons throughout the globe, leading to everyday death and destruction in societies already burdened by climate instability, poverty, and failing infrastructure.
We want songs about the movements demanding peace in these times of computerized warfare, and we wants songs that sensitize and educate us about the ways that 21st century militarism is snuffing out the dreams of people all over the globe today.
The deadline to submit your song is November 24, 2014.
