Die Pittsburgh-Punks von ANTI-FLAG konnten fuer ihren neuen, politischen Song "A Dying Plea Vol 1" die Kuenstler DE’WAYNE, Marcia Richards, Julise Della Gary sowie Tom Morello gewinnen. Anbei stellt die Band einen Videoclip zum Titel vor. Die Erloese der Single gehen an diverse Organisationen u.a. in der Heimatstadt der Band - darunter sisTers Pittsburgh und My Block, My City, My Hood Chicago. Die Band kommentiert:
"The 2020 election has highlighted the heightened divide between so many Americans. It has also clearly defined the unity among the ruling classes, who hand pick and present political candidates who have no intention of challenging an unjust structure of power which protects and enriches the nation’s economic elites.
Their unwillingness to waver on the marginalization, persecution and murder of BIPOC whether by economic isolation, environmental disaster or militarized and racist police forces. Their inability to break from the corporations that buy, sell and trade their policies and platforms allowing them to devour our planet, make us sick and create endless war for the sake of their economies.
With the civic duty of voting behind us and while the world waits to see the electoral outcome, we must turn our attention to the next phases of the work we all need to be doing. Working to hold these people accountable, fighting racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and all bigotry. The change we seek doesn’t come from presidents, prime ministers or popes. It has historically and will always come from The People.
Our hope is that 'A Dying Plea Vol. 1' & 2 serve as a reminder to stay focused on these goals".
