Rest In Peace to Tom Petty

He may have just parted this world, but Tom Petty’s song ‘Refugee’ should always be a powerful reminder for refugees and asylum seekers that although you may indeed be a refugee or an asylee, that:

“Everybody has to fight to be free, you see
You don’t have to live like a refugee;
No baby, you don’t have to live like a refugee”

 

Rest in Peace, Tom Petty

Lin Manuel Miranda: Immigrants (We Get the Job Done)

Mi gente, Lin Manuel Miranda, releases new video off the Hamilton Mixtape (a set of remixes based on Miranda’s massive Broadway musical’s soundtrack).

Also features Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actor Riz Ahmed a.k.a. Riz M.C. Ahmed plays Imperial Cargo Pilot Bohdi Rook, who changes his allegiances after understanding the true evil of the Empire – the creation of the Death Star in secret, away from the prying eyes of the galactic press core. He decides not to follow orders and finds his end in sacrificing himself in the quest for top secret information.

Is this too on the nose?

Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled programming, Lin Manuel Miranda’s Immigrants (We Get the Job Done):
