Get Rage Against the Machine Back Together for a Reunion Concert or Tour

We are in a time of extreme peril. The United States continues to operate its military industrial complex with full force, policing the world and murdering millions, benefiting US banks, oil companies, defense contractors, and manufacturers who boast record profits. The complex continues at home where police forces murder unarmed citizens, especially black citizens, at alarming rates. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is cutting programs like NPR and the National Endowment for the Arts to make way for a $54 billion increase in defense spending despite that fact that the United States spends more on defense than the next 12 countries combined.

While many remain hopeless, music has the healing power to unite the forces of good against evil. During the 2000 Democratic National Convention, Rage Against the Machine played a protest concert across the street in which front man Zack de la Rocha declared to the massive crowd, "brothers and sisters, our democracy has been hijacked." That statement has never been truer than it is today.

The undersigned are asking for Rage Against the Machine to take action in these desperate times, and to unite for a reunion concert (or better yet a reunion tour) in protest of President Trump and the military industrial complex. Their powerful anthems are what we need right now to mobilize and resist the evil forces present in our government and corporations that back the politicians. Through this unity and resistance we can bring about true change.
