De Vloek is an anlternative social centre in Den Haag/The Hague, Netherlands. It is under attack by the city council who want it demolished. Having spent many a wonderful musical evening with the activists that run it, and played at the Piratenbar there, I’m convinced the council are doing a very bad thing. It is the same old story of profit versus people. Many excellent initiatives have come from De Vloek. How long will it be before there are no more free spaces and capitalism encloses everything?!! This song was recorded with slightly changed words to help generate some international solidarity for them! I recorded it at LARC in London on 20/2/15 on the last night of the North/South Divide Tour with Captain Hotknives.
