This compilation was compiled to show solidarity with the Khulumani Support Group legal action against several multi-national corporations who supplied the apartheid regime with the military equipment it used to suppress the majority of South Africa’s people. The core message of this CD is that social justice should never be subordinated in the pursuit of profits. Global society is confronted with a serious dilemma - our personal and national economic goals very often contradict basic human rights in other parts of the world. Should we throw our hands up in despair, or stick our heads in the sand? No, we must constantly strive to transform human society and human systems such that they sustain life and freedom. The artists represented on this CD come from all over the world (South Africa, Ghana, Congo, Togo, Uganda, Mozambique, Iran, the UK, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, Chile, the US and Canada) and in a variety of languages – put one message across - that the powers that be must be held accountable for their actions! Peace. Defboyz, Grahamstown, South Africa.

The Khulumani Support Group is a membership-based organisation of 58,000 survivors of apartheid-era crimes. The Red Card Campaign, was started in support of Khulumani's lawsuit against multinational corporations (IBM, Daimler, Ford, GM, Rheinmettal) that aided and abetted the commission of apartheid crimes by selling equipment to the apartheid security forces.
