News stations around the world are speaking less on the global refugee crisis now than they were two years ago. Despite distractions of Trump’s latest misdemeanor, however, it is a thing that is still going on. En masse, and increasing. In the new video for song In Harm’s Way — a project that has been in the works for almost a year — Amanda Palmer and Spanish artist Abel Azcona broach the landscape that has taken so many lives away in their search for hope.
And it’s not done yet.
Listening to this song the other day with a backdrop of dubstep from the neighbours creates an odd feeling. That feeling is, maybe, the exact kind of odd feeling most decent people have in regards to the world. The thousands upon thousands of children and adults alike that, in search for a tomorrow, no longer have a today.
In Harm’s Way will be released as an a-side on 7″ vinyl to the public on November 17th. Amanda’s patrons can get their hands on it today. Until November 30th, 100% of the proceeds from the song will go directly to Because We Carry, an organization dedicated to getting food, clothing, and other necessities to those in crisis.
You can read more about the creation of the video, In Harms Way, its inspirations and the Because We Carry organization on Amanda Palmer’s blog. It’s a long read, but it’s a read that is a thousand percent worth every last second.
