Hicks’ song for peace


LONDON bombings survivor Gill Hicks, right, yesterday launched a new campaign to help stop violent extremism.

The initiative, #TELLYOU, is about encouragin­g conversati­on between people who have survived or witnessed violent action, even former extremists themselves.

A song, I Want To Tell You, written by Gary Burrows and featuring former jazz singer Ms Hicks, was launched in Sydney yesterday to support the cam- paign, ahead of the 10th anniversar­y of the London bombings next month.

Adelaidebo­rn Ms Hicks, 46, who lost both her legs in the explosions on the London Undergroun­d on July 7, 2005, will return to London for the anniversar­y.

She said preventing terrorism was not as simple as stripping someone of citizenshi­p.
