#Occupy the Airwaves Album by Rebel Diaz Featuring the single "Troy Davis Lives Forever"

TROY DAVIS LIVES FOREVER, by Rebel Diaz (http://twitter.com/#!/RebelDiaz) and produced by Agent of Change (http://twitter.com/#!/agent_of_change), is a letter to Troy Davis, who was murdered by lethal injection on 21 September 2011, in spite of a massive international campaign for clemency. Sampling Billie Holiday's classic song 'Strange Fruit', the song highlights the parallels between traditional racism - where black people could be lynched by paramilitary mobs like the KKK - and the modern systemic racism where black people can be legally lynched on the orders of appointed officials.
