“We live in a world full of injustice. Human history shows us the only way to fight injustice is to raise your voice, raise awareness, raise the will to fight and get back what is your right by birth,” Salome MC said. “I am hoping this project will tell Iranians that none of us are alone in this fight.”
“This album celebrates the noblest cause, a people’s struggle for freedom,” said Arash Sobhani of Kiosk.
“Iranians are our brothers and sisters since ancient days. We share the same destiny. And we share common enemies of freedom and human rights. So we believe that talking to Iran and standing by the Iranian people is important as Egyptians,” said Rush.
