Phil is joining other drummers from around the world to support Sudan 365. In 2011, a referendum will determine whether or not the Southern region of Sudan becomes independent from the North. Experts fear that instability in the run-up to the referendum or its aftermath could reignite a civil war and cause massive human rights abuses unless international efforts are intensified to find a peaceful path through the next 12 months.
Here’s the call-to-action video, which also features Richard Jupp of Elbow, Caroline Corr of the Corrs, Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, Jonny Quinn of Snow Patrol, Stewart Copeland of the Police, and many more.
How to get involved:
Take part in a world-wide drumming video and help us pressure world leaders to push for peace in Sudan. Simply post a video reply on YouTube – in your video description add a line about who’s doing the drumming and where it’s happening, then tag it with ‘Sudan365’ and ‘beat for peace’. We’ll take the best responses we receive and mix them into a final video – containing clips of drummers from across the globe – to demonstrate the support for international action to prevent further conflict.
