Video for the official campaign song for the Free Charlie Official (Charles Salvador) campaign.
Jailed in 1974 for seven years over the theft of a mere £26, Charles Bronson/Salvador had yet to see the light of day. To mark his 70th birthday, and in advance of his 2023 parole hearing, I humbly petition that this talented artist be shown clemency and be afforded the opportunity to live out the rest of his days in peaceful creativity. I therefore submit the following proposition: Free Charles Bronson.
