Prisluh™: PJ Harvey – Shaker Aamer

PJ Harvey

PJ Harvey je objavila nov single Shaker Aamer, s katerim podpira Shakerja Aamerja, ki je zaprt v Guantanamo Bay zaporu. Shaker je v zaporu že preko 11 let, brez obtožnice ali sojenja.

PJ Harvey o o situaciji: “The UK government has repeatedly stated that they want Shaker back in the UK and last week the US announced it is to restart transfers from the prison, beginning with two Algerian men. Yet Shaker remains locked away without charge or trial. He is one of over half the detainees on hunger strike in protest at their indefinite and illegal detention.


besedilo pesmi:

No water for three days.
I cannot sleep, or stay awake.

Four months hunger strike.
Am I dead, or am I alive?

With metal tubes we are force fed.
I honestly wish I was dead.

Strapped in the restraining chair.
Shaker Aamer, your friend.”

In Camp 5, eleven years.
Never charged. Six years cleared.

“They took away my one note pad,
and then refused to give it back.

I can’t think straight, I write, then stop.
Your friend Shaker Aamer. Lost.

The guards just do what they’re told,
the doctors just do what they’re told.

Like an old car I’m rusting away.
Your friend, Shaker. Guantanamo Bay.”

Don’t forget.
