Prophets of Rage te gast
"Today we visited a refugee community center in Amsterdam. What a day. 580 refugees living in what used to be a woman's prison, then a mental hospital, back to a prison and now this. They will be moving the facility to another place next year. Highlight of the day was playing music with a couple refugees, one from Iran and the other was from Pakistan, along with their music teacher. We played music that was a complete cultural mix of sounds and it was awesome. It's amazing to be in a place where the general consensus is to organize and help others in need regardless of where they are from. When the facility first opened a very large number of people showed up with gifts, and wanted to volunteer at the center. I'm humbled, Amsterdam." ️️

De groep, bestaand uit 3 leden van Rage Against the Machine en Audioslave (bassist/backing vocalist Tim Commerford, gitarist Tom Morello, en drummer Brad Wilk), 2 van Public Enemy (DJ Lord en rapper Chuck D), en rapper B-Real of Cypress Hill was onder de indruk. And so were we!
