Hey Hey, Rise Up!

I think this is the best thing I’ll be able to flag up on here today. “Pink Floyd have reunited to record their first new material in 28 years, a protest song against the Ukraine war.” Having just listened to it, it really is a powerful piece of music, based on an Ukrainian folk song. While such gestures could be just dismissed as tokenism, neither here nor there when people are getting killed, I think it is vital that we show our opposition to what Russia is doing in Ukraine however we can. Every day now, we are seeing reports of more and more appalling violence. For Pink Floyd to release this song is a great act, and I really hope we see more like it.
