Refugee (Have Mercy): Walking Borders art in action

IMG_0288

 

Our original song Refugee (Have Mercy) is the theme song for the beautiful and heartfelt art action “Walking Borders”, a project that is bringing awareness to the plight of asylum seekers during the upcoming G20 gathering in Brisbane.

YOUTUBE MUSIC VIDEO:  View our specially-filmed live performance of Refugee (Have Mercy) for Walking Borders with our 80+ voice massed choir of members from Freedom Train, Mixed Beans and With One Voice Brisbane choirs: “Refugee (Have Mercy)” for Walking Borders

Walking Borders participants will be walking a relay around the G20 security-exclusion border of the Brisbane CBD in support of the rights and humane treatment of asylum seekers in Australia and worldwide.  Along the border, they are leaving small paper boats hand-made for the project, as a poignant reminder of the fragility and vulnerability of those who come seeking refuge by boat.

The song will be sung by a massed group on Sat 15 November during the G20 conference, as a flotilla of paper boats is released along the Brisbane River at South Bank.  Everyone is welcome to join us on this day to sing the boats!!
