PJ Harvey – Shaker Aamer

PJ Harvey is the latest public figure using her status to bring to light the plight of Shaker Aamer who is being held at Guantanamo Bay without charge, despite being cleared for release by both Barak Obama’s and George W. Bush’s Administrations.

Following in the steps of Frankie Boyle and Julie Christie, Harvey is showing solidarity with Aamer who is himself on a hunger strike in protest against his continued incarceration.

You can listen to the track below.
