KOJI (they/them/siya - filipinx/okinawan/japanese) released a new song today and responded to the white supremacist, anti-asian, and anti-sex worker events in Atlanta.
“To Carry (On and On)’ is a song about my experience as a member of asian diaspora, facing white supremacy in the so-called United States, and the movements to eradicate the conditions that create violence. It came out today."
[TW: white supremacist violence, anti-AAPI racism]
"It was heartbreaking to wake up to the news of the anti-asian, anti-sex worker murders in Atlanta. Worse yet, it was so violent to hear the Atlanta Police excuse this act of white supremacy by saying “it was a bad day for him.” Policing and carceral approaches will never be the answer.
In response to this tragedy, proceeds this week from the Sunday, Someday @bandcamp will go towards @RedCanarySong who organize with migrant and Asian sex and massage workers in NYC (Lenapehoking), my home the last several years. Please support folks in your communities doing this work and remember that the path towards #StopAsianHate is only possible though decriminalization, black and indigenous liberation, and disability justice." - Koji Shiraki
