VIN GARBUTT-TEESSIDE TROUBADOUR

Four Songs That Challenge Our Prejudices, Demand Justice, and Affirm Life Itself. Listen here to songs that will never be heard on mainstream media.

Vin Garbutt

========================

It’s just over a year since Vin Garbutt died. If anything, since his death, his brilliant protest songs, never to be heard on mainstream media, have acquired a new generation of followers. See:   https://www.davidalton.net/2017/08/16/vin-garbutt-and-suppressed-music-that-deserves-to-be-heard/

His passionate belief in justice, including the right to life of “lost innocents” is reflected in the powerful lyrics of prophetic songs that run counter to a society that ends the life of a child in the womb every three minutes. Why did he risk being “no-platformed” by the music industry and media? Because, as he sings:  

 “I have to do my bit, I cannot bear those fascist views,
And I’ll defend the baby boy or baby girl whose death they’d choose”

InDish of Glasshe also challenges laws that have allowed destructive experiments on millions of British human embryos

 

“There’s a doctor hovering over me, educated
but morally blind, can’t he see,
that my size and shape he himself used to be?
I’m dying.

 

My humanity’s questioned but only by those
who seek to impose their will and dispose
of my unique genetic code. There’s no-one like me.”

 

In Lyndahe upholds the value of every life and tells the story of a woman who refused to let her disabled son be one of the babies whose lives are ended because of disability – including 90% of all babies with Down’s Syndrome. 

 

Here are four songs – now available on You Tube –  which should be shared with others. Clikc on the links:

In advance of Monday’s House of Commons forthcoming vote  on the All Party House of Lords Genocide Amendment, Parliament was told that the Government is hiding behind the fiction of an imaginary judicial mechanism that will hold the CCP accountable for its genocide of the Xinjiang Uighurs. Last night, speaking to a Webinar organised by the Faiths United Youth Network David Alton said that trade deals had become more important than Genocide- “a word which dares not speak its name.”

Government Questioned Today about massacre at Axum in Tigray, and allegations of crimes against humanity. In written replies it says it is unable to “verify reports that this includes the transfer of military equipment and money by the Government of Ethiopia to the Government of Eritrea”; “condemns the destruction of the Hitsats and Shimbella refugee camps in Tigray” and forced return of refugees would contravene the 1951 Refugee Convention; and says ” We are keeping the provision of aid to Ethiopia under constant review.”

For the Uyghurs, Genocide is a word which dares not speak its name. For the sake of women like Rahima Mahmut, Gulzira Auelkhan, Sayragul Sauytbay, and Ruqiye Perhat – whose heart-breaking, shocking, stories are recorded here – it’s time that the crime of genocide was given definition in the UK. On January 19th Parliament can use its voice and speak that name – insisting on justice for victims of Genocide and refusing to make tawdry trade deals with those responsible for the crime above all crimes.
