Anti-Flag dates, short doc

Anti-Flag are in Hamburg, DE tonight, kicking off a European tour. First they will play shows with the Donots, followed by the Punk in Drublic tour, ultimately ending up back home in the USA where they will play at Warped Tour events in New Jersey and California.

The politically-minded band has created a short documentary (~15 minutes long), directed by Bruno Fritsche, called Power To the Peaceful. Check it out after the bump. The band explains:

This piece documents our collective search for empathy in the waking days of Trump's presidency. Traveling Europe during the ever present rise of fascism, scapegoating of immigrants and refugees, and our scenes wanting to assert our voice in opposition to antiquated ideology. There was a fervor in the streets, the songs, the shows, a search for a place to focus our anger, frustration, fear.
