PEACEFUL PROTESTS ARISE AS MUSIC FANS OF THE BAND GRAND DADDY JACK, A SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BASED FUNK/RNB SOUL JAZZ BAND, ARE FORBIDDEN TO DOWNLOAD CONTENT FROM THE BAND'S WEBSITE. GOVERNMENT SANCTIONS CREATING TENSIONS BETWEEN THE US AND IRAN APPEAR TO BE THE CAUSE. LOCAL MUSIC FANS DENOUNCE GOVERNMENT AUTHORITIES' ACTIONS AND VOW TO FIND "ANY MEANS NECESSARY" TO ACQUIRE RECORDINGS OF THE BAND'S LATEST MATERIAL. IRAN'S PRESIDENT HASSAN ROUHANI SAYS THAT THE BAND WILL BE "FORBIDDEN TO ENTER THE COUNTRY TO PERFORM" THE ORIGINAL SONGS THAT ARE QUICKLY SPREADING A MESSAGE OF PEACE AND LOVE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. PROTESTERS HAVE ALREADY BEGUN A CAMPAIGN TO UNDERMINE THESE SANCTIONS.
"WE WILL NOT LET THE TYRANNICAL PRACTICES OF OUR CLERICAL LEADERS TO KEEP US FROM ENJOYING THE SONGS OF THE BAND GRAND DADDY JACK. OUR SPIRITUAL WELLBEING DEPENDS UPON IT." ...MOSHEN NASJ HAMASANI
OPPOSITION TO THE BAND HAS INCREASED OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS FOLLOWING THE RELEASE OF THE SONG "FEEL THE POWER" WHICH HAS GIVEN MUSIC FANS A VOICE AND MOTIVATION TO STAND UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT AND JUST.
Protesters peacefully chant "We love Grand Daddy Jack" as sanctions are imposed on music downloads.
