Hadn't heard about this until recently, but I want to pass this along.
Two Iranian brothers living in exile have a band called Blurred Vision. They were given permission by Roger Waters to re-record the song "Another Brick in the Wall" addressing the Iranian government from the dissident movement.
Normally I view musical remakes with the same loathing one reserves for a mixture of feces and slug-parts on the bottom of a shoe - but not always. And certainly not in this case.
Here is the YouTube embed. The song is available on iTunes.
Spread the word. Let those with freedom speak for those who cannot.

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds
