    Kate Nash Enlists Green Day, Radiohead, More for Standing Rock Protest

    British musician Kate Nash recruited an array of musicians, including Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, Radiohead's Ed O'Brien, Queen's Brian May, Tegan and Sara, Sia and Karen O to sign a letter to Barack Obama regarding the treatment of Standing Rock Sioux tribe members protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline.

    In her letter – which is also addressed to the Department of Justice and Army Corps of Engineers – Nash writes: "We are deeply disturbed by the police actions that have been taking place, where non-violent protests have been and continue to be met with extremely aggressive tactics including; being shot with water cannons in below-freezing temperatures, chemical weapons, rubber bullets and attack dogs. These are the same inhumane methods used during WWII and the civil rights movement."
