Bruce


Bruce Springsteen da un paso al frente y se moja por el cambio político en EEUU. Hoy publica un artículo en The New York Times (Chords for Change) para pedir a sus compatriotas que luchen por unos valores distintos a los que encarna la Administración de Bush:


Like many others, in the aftermath of 9/11, I felt the country's unity. I don't remember anything quite like it. I supported the decision to enter Afghanistan and I hoped that the seriousness of the times would bring forth strength, humility and wisdom in our leaders. Instead, we dived headlong into an unnecessary war in Iraq, offering up the lives of our young men and women under circumstances that are now discredited. We ran record deficits, while simultaneously cutting and squeezing services like afterschool programs. We granted tax cuts to the richest 1 percent (corporate bigwigs, well-to-do guitar players), increasing the division of wealth that threatens to destroy our social contract with one another and render mute the promise of "one nation indivisible."


Junto a otros artistas (Pearl Jam, R.E.M., Jackson Browne y James Taylor, entre otros) realizará una gira por su país en octubre bajo la bandera Vote for Change.
