Junkyard Empire Looks to Partner up with Other Progressive Organizations

Hello out there fellow revolutionaries and future heroes of the new world. We here in the Junkyard Empire have decided to take our thang to another level. That is, we want to start directly partnering up with progressive organizations and their activists to push the issues we feel are important. Those issue include, but are not limited to:

Net Neutrality
Livable Wage - not "minimum wage"
Universal Single-payer non-profit Health Care
Fighting the Corporate Domination of Mainstream Media
Fighting the Limitations of Corporate Radio
Human Rights
Legalization of Hemp
Progressive Taxation
Access to the Internet in Economically Depressed Areas of the World
(otherwise known as "closing the digital divide")
Rural Broadband Access
Public Interest Broadcasting
Instant Run-off Voting
Impeachment of President Bush and all his Aides
Lifting the Travel and Economic Embargoes on Cuba

The list can obviously go on for miles, because there are miles of problems that have to be dealt with in the world, mostly stemming from right here in the USA.

So, if you or someone you know works with organizations that fight for these causes, please hip them to our music and our message. We would like to partner up with at least two or three of these organizations, and we can do that in a number of ways. The simplest way at first is that we will provide stage time for people from these organizations to speak during our shows, and we will also allow for tabling at every show we play. All we ask is that you contact us ahead of time, so we can work it into our set.

If interested, send us an email to

Let's do this!
