Rage Against the Machine, REM, Jarvis donate art to nonprofit

Modest Mouse, Public Enemy also contribute to auction

Rage Against The Machine, R.E.M and Jarvis Cocker are among the musicians to donate handmade signs to an auction to benefit War Child International.

Modest Mouse, Spoon, Death Cab For Cutie, The Flaming Lips, The Decemberists, Public Enemy and Fleet Foxes have also contributed pieces to the auction, as have The Duke Spirit, Elbow, Foals, Neon Neon, Supergrass and Rilo Kiley.

The pieces were originally published earlier this summer in the Under The Radar Protest Issue which featured the artists holding the signs bearing their thoughts on present day politics.

The 7-day eBay auction of the protest signs featured in the issue kicks off September 30. All proceeds will go to benefit War Child International, a nonprofit organisation that helps children in areas of conflict across the globe.
