action sedition

Love knowing that this website has gone fully global…today a Cambodian member of a Canadian anti-facist street punk band called Action Sedition sent in a new music video that his band put out featuring some Asian punk rock kids. Check out his description below:

“Here is a clip of a streetpunk band from Montreal, Canada: Action Sedition. The video tells the story of a young asian antifascist skinhead who was drowning in problems of all kinds; fighting, burglary and urban rivalry especially against fascists in their neighborhood. Lost and disenfranchised, he built his identity through bad decisions. Offenses after offenses, he accumulates severals repercussions. In the end, his friends brought him back to order by straight talking.

Greatly influenced by the French film of the same name : « La haine ». I suggest you read the story in subtitle and the lyrics.

It’s talking about how difficult immigrant children from harsh neighbourhoods in America live there frustration and often sell drugs and commit crimes as there only way out. Very sad reality that some of us have to get through. Racism and poverty doesn’t help either! Thanks for your time!

La haine (hatred)

Every day, the same story, the same thing
It’s been a while, you cease to believe, it’s morose
Your parents settled in this country
Misery makes them forget all the dreams they wished
At school, you are bored, you search yourself
Looking for a job to get you out of trouble but nothing’s there
Discriminate because of your name, they don’t hires you
How live in this prison? In your blood hatred infused
When you see what is happening here
You have the Hate
Hate of this society which is denying you
You’re not part of their plan, they say that you disturb
Oooh Oooh You have the hate!
How many times people told you
Go back to your country you dirty foreigners
The media and the news portraits that you’re nothing good
You came with your family, steal their Paradise
Rejected from all, what you have? …Your friends
So the same struggles unites you
Drugs, violence, burglary, it is all you have
You have learned from your young age, at the bottom of society
When you see what is happening here
You have the Hate
Hate of this society which is denying you
You’re not part of their plan, they say that you disturb
Oooh Oooh You have the hate!
The well-have believe that so far everything’s fine
The pigs protect their achievements like Dogs
Yesterday a youth from the neighborhood as died
From the hand of the police, you decide to revolt”
