Whilst we’re more online than in person, I’ve been putting together the occasional campaigning video to virtually bring together many voices for change. Many of these have been with members of Protest in Harmony and the Campaign Choirs Network. I’ll collate them here as they appear.

This video was put together in support of real climate action, and to remind us that we are many.
Made for the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. ‘Hiroshima Song’ was written by a survivor of the bombing of Hiroshima. It translates as “It is important that we tell the children what happened at Hiroshima and Nagasaki so that it never happens again.”
“We remember the victims of the dawn of the nuclear weapons age in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and we honour the survivors who seek the sunset of that age by pledging to join them in their fight to ban and eliminate nuclear weapons.” Add your voice to this pledge and help us pressure governments to sign up to the global ban on nuclear weapons here: https://rise.icanw.org/
