Thursday night. Hot. Bonnaroo. If you build it, they will come. We build the WITNESS tent. And concertgoers are visiting us in droves. YAY. We’re projecting our short WITNESS promotional videos (which talk about the work we’re doing) on the top of our tent. Many people have also been signing our postcard to President Calderon of Mexico. It’s part of our Dual Injustice campaign to pressure the government of Mexico to do more to address the murders of young women in Ciudad Juarez and Chihuahua Mexico. You can sign the postcard too. Just click here.
In 15 minutes we’re headed to see Vampire Weekend perform. They give a shout out to Peter Gabriel (WITNESS founder) in their song Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa. Apprently, they are fans of his. We’re fans of theirs. How fitting.
We’re gonna check them out and see if there are ways in which we can get them involved in some WITNESS campaigns.
G’night for now from Manchester, TN.
PS. Did I mention that Melinda Doolittle was on my plane today? A WITNESS pin goes to the first person who (without googling) can tell me who Melinda Doolitte is.
