“The billionaires, the corporate executives and their favorite presidential candidates have one clear goal: to convince you that everything you imagine is impossible. To convince you that reform is hopeless. To convince you that because no one can be pure, it’s pointless to try to make anything better,” Warren said.

“Those with power — and those who do their bidding — dump an endless avalanche of excuses, misdirections and distractions on the American people. It’s all designed to get us to give up and resign ourselves to the way things are — with them in power and everyone else left behind.” – Elizabeth Warren from her New Year’s Eve Address

The official music video for Pussy Riot and Dave Sitek’s “Bad Apples” (2018).Directed by: Matt CreedEditor: Grace KlineDirector of Photography: Brett JutkiewiczArt Direction: Dylan EastgaardSpecial Thanks to John TremblayPussy Riot includes a note with the track:”Hey comrades. Hope you are not going to like our new track, since it’s dedicated to really disgusting things. Hope you will turn it off, go out and act.We’re sort of confused about the fact that the most of songs we hear are circling around romantic feelings and friday parties, although only rare tracks are dedicated to not less important topics such as a) climate change, b) gun control, c) arrests of political activists, d) structural inequality e) sexism f) killer cops, brutality and abuse of power that state institutions commit on a daily basis g) urgent need of good-quality accessible healthcare and education.Mediazona, our activist media agency, posts news that you’d rather not read – endless criminal cases for reposts and for participation in rallies, brutal tortures of our fellow activists in secret FSB prisons, kidnapping and beatings of gay people in Chechnya, murders of Kremlin’s opponents. State violence that we’re forced to experience and think about every day. That’s why almost all our our tracks are about bad apples.”
