Rage Against the Machine to Plug Arizona Boycott
Rage Against the Machine will push for artists and musicians to boycott Arizona because of its new and restrictive immigration law.
The politically outspoken rap-rock band's lead singer, Zach de la Rocha, plans to announce Wednesday (July 21) that proceeds from a concert in Los Angeles on Friday (July 23) will go to organizations fighting against Arizona's law.
De la Rocha, guitarist Tom Morello, singer-songwriter Conor Oberst and United Farm Workers co-founder Dolores Huerta will also throw their support behind Sound Strike, an artists' boycott of Arizona.
Norteno superstars Los Tigres del Norte, Colombian rock singer Juanes, salsa-ska band Ozomatli and Puerto Rican reggaeton duo Calle 13 have signed on, along with Sonic Youth, Kanye West and Massive Attack.
