Bringing Down the Sun an original song written and preformed by the rock band Paranoid Earthling, highlights the impact of conflict on youth in Sri Lanka. Paranoid Earthling is made up by Mirshad, Dhanushka, Asela and Shanka, four young musicians from Kandy, with 7 years of experience and a loyal fan base among urban Sri Lankan youth. The song will hopefully inspire young people to take an active stand on peaceful conflict resolution, so that their generation will finally know what it means to live in a country where guns are silent.
2011 is PBI's 30th year. Unfortunately, the world is still a dangerous to be a human rights defender, and the need for international accompaniment to protect such courageous and important people is as strong as ever.
