Video: Moby and MoveOn Protest Budget Cuts Against the Poor

1100414-mobyAs artist and musician Moby states at the beginning of the video below, the Republicans have put forth a budget that gives tax breaks to big corporations and to millionaires, but hurts veterans, the elderly, children, and women.

I had a chance to interview Moby for Sojourners a few years ago and was impressed by his commitment to uphold his values. He's willing to put action behind words, as evidenced by the fact that he is now joining the Hunger Fast for a Moral Budget.

Watch his video announcement below and consider joining the Hunger Fast today:
