United4Iran.org launches on YouTube - call for global rally on July 25th

In the face of the continued unrest in Iran over the June 12th presidential elections, a group of human rights organizations have come together to launch United4Iran.org - a nonprofit that is pushing for a global day of solidarity with Iranians on July 25th. They're organizing rallies in dozens of cities across the world, and have partnered with YouTube experts AgitPop to get the word out with the video below.

AgitPop tells Citizentube that this video features music from DJ Spooky, who they also collaborated with on "Stop the Clash of Civilizations", the video that won the "Best Political Video" contest on YouTube in 2007. Take a look:

A little music okay, but this sort of singing for this clip is really in poor taste. I find it almost disrespectful. However the music involved here is truly beautiful just not suitable for this. Please do ask an art director to help you a bit if possible. Best to you.
