Massive Attack Hail Occupy London

New mixes streaming now

Massive Attack have shown their support for the Occupy London movement by launching a series of mixes.

The Occupy movement began as a grassroots protest against the seeming inequalities of the current financial climate. Moving across the globe, Occupy hit London in the Autumn sparking a spontaneous demonstration.

Gathering enormous media attention, the Occupy camp at St Paul’s split public opinion. Now in an effort to show solidarity with the campaigners, Massive Attack have launched a series of mixes.

Roping in some well known friends, Massive Attack are streaming the mixes alongside a simple mission statement:

“we did some mixes in support of the occupy london movement. We don’t see it as left versus right or anarchy versus order but people taking action and applying pressure on a problem that politicians are unable to fix as they are also the shareholders.
look forward to your comments and criticisms.”
