Join the world’s first global musical petition! All you have to do is watch the video of the song “Beds are Burning” which was recorded by by over 60 artists and celebrities, including Duran Duran, Mark Ronson, Jamie Cullum, Melanie Laurent, Marion Cotillard, Milla Jovovich, Fergie, Lily Allen, Manu Katche, Bob Geldof, Youssou N’Dour, Yannick Noah and many more. It was especially re-written by Midnight Oil to reflect the greatest humanitarian crisis facing humankind today – climate change. Watch the video here or on YouTube, or you can also download it for free here, or at the Apple iTunes store (not available in all regions). Every download counts as part of the TckTckTck campaign to let our world leaders know the world is ready for an ambitious, fair, and binding climate deal in Copenhagen this December.
The song was driven by one of the co-founders of the TckTckTck campaign, former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, who said: “Climate change is the greatest humanitarian challenge facing mankind today. And it is a challenge that has a grave injustice at its heart. It is the major developed economies of the world which contribute the overwhelming majority of global greenhouse emissions. But it is the poorer and least developed nations that are hit hardest by its impact. By downloading the song, people from around the world will add their names to this growing global petition, and together we will create such a noise our leaders will listen”.
