ANOHNI – Obama [VIDEO]

Nella tracklist di Hopelessness, il debutto a nome ANOHNI pubblicato quest’anno (qui la nostra recensione), c’è un brano, intitolato semplicemente Obama, parecchio critico nei confronti del (ancora per poco) Presidente degli Stati Uniti. Adesso la traccia ha il suo video ufficiale, realizzato sulla falsariga degli altri estratti dal disco ma accompagnato da una lettera aperta rivolta ad Obama in cui ANOHNI chiede la scarcerazione dell’attivista Chelsea Manning.

OBAMA,
I voted for you, I campaigned for you across Europe,
Like thousands of others, in the newspapers and on TV, telling European press that you were a feminist, a kind an reasonable man, a just and fair man, that you would restore our country’s dignity.

OBAMA, Please let Chelsea Manning out of prison.
Recognize her tremendous sacrifice, and her vulnerability.
With Trump incoming, if you leave Chelsea there
She will never see the light of day, or worse.

If you leave her in prison
You send the final message to our nation that the Obama administration brutally punished moral courage in these unforgiving United States.

She has suffered Enough, President Obama
She poses no threat.

Show us the heart of the Obama administration now.

The election is over.
There is no political advantage left in allowing Chelsea to perish in prison.

Have mercy on her, Obama,
friend of the trans community:
I implore you to Free Chelsea Manning.
