MAY 21, 2012 – The top activist musician today, Tom Morello, was out in Chicago amongst the activists who were protesting NATO bombing and unnecessary wars, and was playing a concert when the sound system had a problem and cut out.
No problem for Tom, just like the Guitarmy in New York last week he walked out like a troubadour and played in the audience with everyone helping him sing along. He also had a few guitarists from the audience helping him out, adding to the Guitarmy atmosphere.
Iraq Veterans Against the War were also there, along with activists calling for NATO to stop bombing and creating wars such as Afghanistan, and ending the Afghanistan War which has dragged on for over ten years now. Watch the video of Tom playing in the audience below.
