If the environmental movement has been looking for an 80s “We are the World”-type anthem; this celebrity-fueled remake of the classic “Beds are Burning” song is a fine candidate. Over 60 international music stars and celebrities including Duran Duran, Mark Ronson, Jamie Cullum, Melanie Laurent, Marion Cotillard, Milla Jovovich, Fergie, Lilly Allen, Bob Geldof, Youssou N’Dour, Yannick Noah and many more took part in the recording. The effort is all part of The Global Humanitarian Forum’s ‘Tck Tck Tck; Time for Climate Justice’ campaign — which seeks to demand climate justice at the UN’s Copenhagen Climate Change Summit in December.
The song is available as a free download — with the intention that every person who grabs the file is signing a first-ever global musical petition; adding their names to demand world leaders reach a fair, binding and global deal at the UN Climate Change Summit. So far, over one million people have joined the campaign. Check out the video below and then leave us some comments to tell us what you think!
