For the Attention of the McLibel Support Campaign,
Thank your for your fax from about a year ago. I am sorry to take so damn long to reply. If you saw how much mail I get you would, hopefuly, understand.
How did the appeal go or is it still being dragged out like the court case was. Unfortunately, I can't offer any financial help at the moment because I'm under corporate attack myself... As you may or may not have heard the former members of my old band, Dead Kennedy's, are now suing the shit out of me because I would not let them put our song, “Holiday in Cambodia" in a Levi's commercial.
They're claiming I ripped them off on royalties but that isn't true. They're just greedy and out for revenge. I can't believe they've turned into people as low as this. So if anyone wonders what's going on in this area, please spread the word.
Meanwhile, best of luck to you, Helen and Dave and the supporting crew. Burn an effigy of Ronald for me. As the millenium dome melts.
