The Axis of Justice Radio Network, the monthly radio program hosted by Tom Morello (Audioslave) and Serj Tankian (System of a Down), will launch its 2006 season with a very special show set to air Friday, January 13. Morello and Tankian will welcome Noam Chomsky, the famed scholar, political activist and libertarian socialist. The Axis of Justice Radio Network can be heard on KPFK in Los Angeles (90.7 FM) and in Santa Barbara (98.7 FM) at 7:00PM, online at www.kpfk.org, and on XM Satellite Radio on XM channel 53. The show will also be archived at axisofjustice.org.

The interview was conducted and taped in December and over the course of the one-hour program, Chomsky discusses subjects such as Iraq, propaganda, American activism, the international labor movement, and hope for the future. When Chomsky was asked "what gives you hope for the future", he
responded, "What gives me hope is people like you, and your listeners. In fact, the general population of the United States." He goes on to say how, despite right-wing politicians and a massive campaign to shift American values to the right, Americans maintain startlingly progressive, humane values.

AXIS OF JUSTICE is a non-profit organization formed by Morello and Tankian. Its purpose is to bring together musicians, fans of music, and grassroots political organizations to fight for social justice together. AXIS OF JUSTICE aims to build a bridge between fans of music around the world and local political organizations to effectively organize around issues of peace, human rights, and economic justice.

Kay, I guess I'm the first one to comment. I love Soad and Axis Of Justice is a good thing that Serj is doing. I am very sick of the person who comments first on most news stories, its always something negative about the band. If you hate the band losers than stop posting about them. QUEERS!
