Arts Labour Weekend Video

Weekend video: Solidarity, by Bill and Joel Plaskett

KJIPUJTUK (Halifax) – From Joel and Bill Plaskett’s last album Solidarity, here is its title track performed live in front of a small CBC audience.  It’s summer, the sun is shining, it’s a father-son duet, which is so neat. Those are just a few of the reasons why we picked this video.  Most of all, it’s a lovely song.

Solidarity, we stand in solidarity
We're weary but we're ready
pushing boulders up the hill.
Let them have the towers
the next blue sky is ours,
We're in this fight to win,
and we will.

This weekend’s Weekend Video is dedicated to all the Chronicle Herald newsroom workers who fought so hard for a fair deal.
