Canadian singer-songwriter Frazey Ford has released a new protest song titled The Kids Are Having None Of It. The song comes as a response to Greta Thunberg’s activism as well as the force that is young people raising their voices and standing up for the future around the world.
Ford released a statement where she explained her motivations for the song, the kids featured in it and how community drives activism.
“This song came out of a desire to envision change as though it has already happened and to champion the incredible movements that we’re seeing right now. Beyond our collective fear and anger about what is and isn’t happening, to create an image of the wave of change that most of us would like to see. The cast of the video are all close friends, moms and neighbourhood kids that my son grew up with. We had a beautiful day, being together. I think the love of community, real relationships, and the willingness to include the experiences of others is the real basis of activism.“
