Celebrated London-based spoken word artist Potent Whisper has just released “The Rhyming Guide to Lauri Love”, a brilliant nine minute poetic exposition of the background to Lauri Love’s case and his fight against extradition. The piece takes in social attitudes to hackers, the story of Aaron Swartz and the key issues raised by Lauri’s case.
“The Rhyming Guide To Lauri Love” has been released online, in the midst of a vociferous online campaign in support of Love as he fights against extradition and a potential 99 year prison sentence in the US. The #TrialAtHome campaign and supporting online radio broadcasts, has been running twelve-hour twitter campaigns on the three successive Sundays leading up to Love’s appeal at the Royal Courts of Justice, reaching its culmination on Sunday 26 November.
On its first Sunday event alone, the campaign produced tweets from 350 contributors across the UK, Europe and the United States, reaching an estimated audience of over a million twitter users.
The PasteBin and page LauriLove.Info where created to raise averseness for Lauri’s trial and help those who want to get involved to share information easily. #TrialAtHome is a social media campaign in support of Lauri Love by activists across the globe. We ask everyone who participates in this campaign to share as widely and as loudly as possible. While doing so, do not forget to quote the #TrialAtHome tag especially on twitter as it will help us reach a wider audience.
HASTAGS are as follows: #TrialAtHome #NoLove4USGov #FreeLauriLove #FreeLove. Please share videos, artwork, articles and words of support for Lauri Love. United We Stand!
