“The streets shall be our brushes – the squares our palettes”
Soul and madness, reggae and bass: this pretty much sums up my favourite tracks this month.
A number of newspapers have all run stories over the last week stating that we are seeing a rise in antisemitic incidents in Britain as a result of Israel’s bombardment of Gaza.
Like millions of people all over the world we are angry, horrified and shocked by the slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza by Israel – so angry it is hard to actually express in words. The Palestinian death toll stands at 1,032 as we write. Here are their names.
In response to Israel’s horrific assault on Gaza, an international hip hop collective has put together this track calling for a boycott of Israel.
It’s been an interesting fortnight since the 10 July public sector strike, when around 1.5 million council workers, teachers, civil servants, firefighters, Transport for London staff and others walked out for the day.
