With Schapelle Corby seriously ill in an Indonesian prison cell, artists from across the world continue to rally and call for her immediate release.
Through the Artists for Schapelle portal, the worldwide music movement has been developing rapidly for several months. This week Australian artists 'Vanessa Lea & Road Train' contributed another outstanding track, "Come Home Schapelle", which calls out to Australians to reach deep inside their hearts for the ailing Schapelle (http://www.schapelle.net/health.html).
Artists for Schapelle is a showcase for a growing number of artists, who are protesting through music, attempting to save the life of a once strong and healthy young woman.
Last week, a report from a top Australian psychiatrist, Dr Phillips, revealed the extent of her condition, explaining that she will die if she remains in prison.
Emily Clarke, administrator of the portal, commented:
"The stark reality is that a mentally ill Australian Citizen is dying in a squalid and filthy cell, suffering terrible conditions which continue to compound her already serious condition. Yet the Australian government have done nothing to help her, ignoring increasingly desperate cries for help from her family and from people from around the world. The details revealed by the psychiatrist are absolutely heartbreaking. She has been slowly crushed and destroyed over 5 years, and is now just hanging on."
"Musicians from around the world are appalled, and through music are holding out a hand across the waters to her, and demanding action to help save her life"
"This is music from the soul. Wonderful ballads from Holly Wilson, classic protest anthems from US based Tara Hack, staggering rock passion from Sex in the Desert, and even metal from UK band Mortalis. The music quality is breathtaking, as it is driven from the heart."
Music critics have acclaimed the songs, with one European based Jan Felding recently referring to them as "genuine epic classics" and predicting "global mainstream appreciation".
