NDEMNED TO EXECUTION…
DISGUSTED LONDON BAND SCREAM OUT FOR JUSTICE
Yesterday, 16th October 2014, death row mother of 5 Asia Bibi heard her appeal for mercy rejected by Lahore High Court. Sentenced to death by hanging under Pakistan’s notorious Blasphemy laws, Asia returned to her squalid prison cell to await her fate.
In disgust, London band ooberfuse today release FREE, a music video crying out for an end to the persecution of non-Muslim religious minorities in Pakistan and around the world. They join a British Pakistani Christian Association protest this Saturday from 11:00 – 13:00 at 10 Downing Street.

Cherrie Anderson, frontwoman of the band, explains : “We have been calling out for Asia’s release ever since we translated Asia’s autobiography into English. Asia’s own words inspired our defiant anthem FREE. We will carry on our campaign until religious minorities around the world enjoy the freedoms people of all faiths and none enjoy here in the UK.”
