Fundraiser: ‘They Cut We Bleed’ single download
Saturday, December 9, 2017
This month East London-based electro artist Gaptooth released a new single, ‘They Cut We Bleed’ to raise money for Sisters Uncut’s on-going fight against cuts to domestic violence services. The track features chants from Sisters Uncut actions across London last year, including parts of our Feministo, and the video is a look back at some of our highlights, from the storming of the red carpet at the Suffragette premier to reclaiming the visitors’ centre at Holloway Prison.
“In the UK, two women a week are killed by a partner or ex-partner, but the government is cutting funding for refuges, legal aid, social housing – all services that survivors rely on,” says Gaptooth. “Across the country, the first services to shut down have been those set up for women of colour and LGTBQ+ survivors, while many migrant survivors are denied the right to access refuges at all. This is a matter of life or death. Theresa May has made a show of being tough on domestic violence, but is taking away lifelines for people trying to escape it.”
The track is now available on iTunes, Spotify and all the usual places you get your music, but the best way to get the highest percentage of your cash to Sisters Uncut is to download it for £1 at Gaptooth’s bandcamp store. There is still so much more to do to save our services – help us out and get some kickass new music at the same time!
