Harnessing the power of social media, Blurred Vision have compiled a video from fans around the world chanting the global rallying cry of "Hey Ayatollah Leave Those Kids Alone"!
The band stated "The purpose behind the video is to raise awareness and attention towards the growing number of executions taking place in Iran, as well as the Iranian regimes involvement in the horrific government crackdown upon protestors in Syria. But mostly, to make a clear and loud stance against any calls or intentions of another war from our own governments here at home".
Blurred Vision and Roger Waters, who posted the video to his Facebook page in the middle of the Australian leg of his colossal "The Wall" tour, are major anti-war advocates and hope the new video can rally support here in the US and Europe to protest any action of military warfare with Iran.
"The only result from war with Iran will be complete devastation for the people in the country, and destroy all hopes the international community has of reaching peace and prosperity in the region. Iraq is a perfect example of this and for this reason, we are using our music and our public profile to stand against the Iranian regime and try whatever peaceful methods we have to avoid and prevent a full out war launched by our governments against the Islamic Republic".

Help Save Saeed:
Saeed Malekpour is an Iranian/Canadian website developer who resided in Toronto, and returned to Iran in 2008 to visit his ailing father. The regime has accused him of "crimes against Islam". The accusation stems from the involvement of Saeed working as a developer on a website that had some pornographic content.
Sign the Amnesty International petition to stop the executions in Iran.
