Song for Shaker: free the last UK Gitmo prisoner!

Andy writes, "This is the promotional video for a new campaign, We Stand with Shaker, aimed at securing the release from Guantanamo of Shaker Aamer, the last British resident in the prison, who is still held despite being approved for release in 2007 and 2009."

The video includes 'Song for Shaker Aamer' by me, Andy Worthington (the campaign's director, a journalist who has been writing about Guantanamo and campaigning to get the prison closed since 2006) and my band The Four Fathers, as well as clips of the campaign's other promotional gambits – celebrities standing with a giant inflatable figure of Shaker Aamer (as the "elephant in the room" of US-UK negotiations) and photos that people from all around the world have sent in, of themselves standing with signs declaring, "I Stand With Shaker."
