"Your musical contribution reminds us of the unique dynamic of mutual inspiration between artists and the struggle for peace on Vieques that helped us put an end to half century of US Navy bombing here on May 1st, 2003.  Your artistic solidarity will help us re-establish Radio Vieques, a key tool in the continuing struggles for decontamination, return of our lands and sustainable community development."
