Myanmar based punk rock band Rebel Riot have released a new single to coincide with the ongoing social/political upheaval in their country as the military has staged a coup and taken over the country along with imprisoning members of the democracy movement there.
The band states, “We started making this song about 5 months ago with the idea that we would use all our strength to transform ourselves and the world around us into one of compassion and peace. We understood that for this revolution we need to work together to create it ourselves – we all hold creative forces that carry us together in strength, but we are now faced with a new urgency.
Since the 1st of February and the beginning of the coup d’état we are fighting in every way that we can to eradicate the dictatorship. We hope that this song will be a source of strength for all the people in the revolution. We hope it inspires those who are still confused. We hope you will not forget the battles we will have to fight in the future. For a ‘day’ that we can stand strong together, without fear, united in love for all our differences.”
The vocalist has sent us the following links in case you want to read up on what’s going on: HERE, and HERE.
We, Unite Asia, are from Hong Kong, and thus know how important it is to get and receive worldwide support for those of us around the world fighting for our voices to be heard.
Solidary with the people of Myanmar.
