In the UK, our right to protest is at stake. The introduction of the Policing Bill means that police officers have the right to prevent peaceful protests from taking place. Here to remind us about the importance of, and joy found in, protest and revolution, is President Street with their music video for their protest song, TIME IS UP.
A dancer swirls around lead singer Ruby against a colourful background of effects in a display of pure joy. Ruby and Pete's faces drift in and out of focus, showing Pete's drumming and Ruby's stellar vocal turn.
Here's what the band had to say about the song:
“Watching the news we were struck by the diversity of people coming together peacefully and so we wanted it to feel like a celebration of people of all colours, age, religions and gender coming together to say that we’ve all had enough, and the time for change is now.”
TIME IS UP is out now!
