Last week, Kenya held a national election tainted with vote-tampering. It ended in a claim of victory for incumbent President Mwai Kibaki over the challenger Raila Odinga who had led the polls -- now Kenya's future hangs in the balance. Violence has broken out across the country, with roving gangs of machete-wielding youth terrorizing the population. Suddenly, this hopeful country could be sliding toward genocide.
We must not sit back and watch this nightmarish scenario unfold -- but we need to act fast. Archbishop Desmond Tutu has flown into Nairobi, joining the African Union in an effort to broker a power-sharing agreement and review the election results. But if talks are to succeed, foreign governments must avoid prematurely recognizing a fraudulently elected government and locking in their power. That's where we come in.
Please send a note to your foreign minister today, asking them to withhold recognition of any Kenyan government until agreement is brokered and the election results are independently reviewed – you can do so using our simple online tool at the link below (and when you're done, please forward this email to friends and family):
It's too early to tell how far the situation in Kenya could deteriorate -- and we just can't afford to wait and find out. Please send a note to your foreign minister today.

DARKMANNAZ have just reached the top spot in the reverbnation alternative chart!!
Reverb Nation is proving to be a serious contender for the 'better than myspace' crown. The site offers a host of functionality that myspace is currently missing, i.e. interconnective widgets that can be posted anywhere on the web with a centralised tally, comprehensive stats for bands/artists, a player/gig diary you can post anywhere on the web which only has to be updated in one place.
Most importantly reverbnation boasts a rapidly expanding, responsive community who are interested in what is happening on the site. This is something which myspace has been sorely lacking in the last year, plagued by increasingly overbearing banner ads and spam.
We have met some fantastically talented individuals and groups in the fortnight we have been on reverbnation and look forward to it's continued prosperity as a forum for exciting independent music.
Keep listening and watching, new tracks en route soon!
