Snow Patrol covers Lennon's hit 'Isolation' for Amnesty International's campaign calling for justice in Sudan

British band Snow Patrol have covered former Beatle John Lennon's hit 'Isolation' as part of Amnesty International's online campaign calling for justice in Sudan.

The cover is the soundtrack for a new video, which is calling for war criminals to be punished for the rape of thousands of women in Darfur.

The video can be viewed at noise.amnesty.org and the song can also be downloaded from Amnesty's site.

[As John Lennon was a real peace loving guy, I find it difficult to imagine him approving of his name being connected to such a campaign, the timing of which - during such a sensitive stage of crucial peace and disarmament talks, not to mention delicate negotiations for forces to protect the people of Darfur - I feel is not only poor judgement on Amnesty's part but wrong]
