VIDEO: Czech recording artist Bonus responds to anti-Roma marches

Prague, 12.7.2013 21:52, (ROMEA)

At a time when the top politicians in the Czech Republic are maintaining a dogged silence about the current wave of anti-Romani marches, artists have begun to speak out. Acclaimed musician Martina Hůlu, who performs under the nickname Bonus, composed and recorded overnight a protest song responding to the hate marches by "decent" people against the Roma in České Budějovice.

"In the car I heard Michal Tučný singing on the radio 'String him up higher, let him swing / He was the uninvited guest / String him up, he’s not one of us but / He is breathing our same air'. It reminded me of what we are living through now," Bonus said in an interview for Rádio Wave when asked what led him to write the anti-racist piece.
