This is the Official video for The Bell, by Stephan Said, aka Stephan Smith, directed by Kurt St. Thomas. The song features folk legend Pete Seeger and Dean Ween of Ween on lead guitar. The video includes footage of Stephan singing the song before approximately 200,000 people at the first major antiwar demonstration, at the Washington Monument, in Washington, DC, on April 2002, as well as rare Super 8 footage of the Sept. 11 World Trade Center Bombing, and antiwar protests worldwide. The Bell mp3 and video were released on Sept. 11, 2002, and broke into the mainstream press as the "first major song opposing the Iraq War" (NY Times) and called "the antiwar anthem for our generation." The song and video broke ground as the first major online music video for social change, going viral worldwide through student groups and international peace and human rights organizations, just before You Tube started.
