Song by Hilary Bow aims to raise awareness of M.A.S.I.
A song by Hilary Bow aims to raise awareness of M.A.S.I. – Movement of Asylum Seekers Ireland.
People across the world flee their homes in terror, their lives threatened, facing hopelessness and nothing to count on but the kindness of others. They traverse physical and mental hardships that for many of us would be inconceivable.
To highlight this tragedy,"Don't See Any Lines" by Hilary Bow was first released on World Refugee Day last year. It is supported by U.N.E.S.C.O, Irish Refugee Council and the Migrant Rights Centre to raise awareness of M.A.S.I. – Movement of Asylum Seekers Ireland, a grassroots organisation that grew out of the 2014 Direct Provision protests.
Featuring Liam Ó'Maonlaí (from Hothouse Flowers) on vocals and harp, it is now being re-released on youtube.
The song emphasises a plight: Some of these people, now finding themselves falling under the label of ‘refugee’ and ‘asylum seeker’ arrive to host countries to safety. Prior to Direct Provision, these people had a chance of gathering their strength again, living after surviving, building a new life.
Their voice must be heard – this is what “Don’t See Any Lines” aims to help achieve.
Hilary Bow says, "Awareness is key. I hope this song will draw some attention to the refugee crisis and M.A.S.I. members, especially during this exacerbating pandemic."
