Let's stand up for the Underdog. Having released a song with such an
appropriate title "Underdog", artist Alan Steward took the next step
and decided to donate all profite from his song to benefit the Free
Tibet Movement.

Alan Steward donates all of the proceeds from his latest single
"Underdog" to Free Tibet.

100% of the profits from the sale of Alan Steward's latest single
will be donated to the Free Tibet Movement.

Acclaimed Producer and Recording Artist Alan Steward decided to
donate all of the profits from the sale of his latest single "Underdog" from
his latest album "Pop Icon" to the Free Tibet Movement.

"As a practicing Buddhist and simply as a human being, I can't sit
idly by while Tibet's right to self determination is squashed by
tanks and brute military force. I had to do something" says record
producer and recording artist Alan Steward.

The Tibetan people are some of the most peace loving people in the
world and there has never been a war fought or a terror act planned
on behalf of Buddhism. Yet our political leaders are quiet. The
Bejing Olympics are going on as nothing happened and none of our
leaders seem to stand up for the Underdog. Will somebody come out in
open support? Or do politicians only stand up for countries that have
the right natural resources or religious ideologies? Is oil really
more important than people?

Alan Steward decided to do his part. "I produce dance music, not
protest songs but the song "Underdog" seemed just so appropriate for
this effort. The lyrics talk about the Underdog that will not be held
down because he's a true believer. When I wrote the song, I watched
the violence against the Tibetan people unfold on TV and I decided
right there, this song will be dedicated to the Tibetan people. The
next step was a natural one, to donate the money from sales of this
song to the Free Tibet Movement. Maybe I can help in just a little
way and maybe I'll be able to help in a big way. It depends on the
success of the song," says Alan Steward.

European born Alan Steward now lives in the rainforests of the
Caribbean Island of Trinidad where people just recently faced a
similar struggle when their rain forest was slated to be flattened to
make way for the construcion of a huge acid rain producing aluminum
plant by a US metal giant.

"The people here won that struggle, the rainforest stays and the
metal plant was sent packing. It was like the movie 'The mouse that
roared'. A thousand villagers against a multi-billion dollar,
multi-national giant. There was lots of intimidation, agressive
police actions but the villagers, simple fishermen and farmers who
simply stood up for their land and their way of lfe won. That event
was covered by the international press and it played out just a few
dozen miles away from my home and this gave me hope that the
"Underdog" can win." says a confident Alan Steward.
