All the groups and coworkers participated in this compilation for free in solidarity with the Brazilian association IBCC
in São Paulo, that received all the profits for their project `Liberty' helping women with little income to cure their

become symbols of strength and hope.'

Japan and Eterne Rima
All our supportive best wishes and incouragements for the people of Japan who are suffering from the catastrophe that
struck their country, with the earthquake, the tidal wave, and the Hukusima nuclear accident.
Our friend and artist, Eterne Rima in Tokyo, has taken shelter from the nuclear fallout with his wife and children in
Osaka in the south of Japan, and greets all his fans.
He escaped without damage, but informs us that his musical projects are on stand-by until the end of the aftershocks and
the untimely breaks in electricity and internet.
He has opened a page on Facebook:
