Today, Bandcamp is waiving their fee on all sales on the website, so many labels and artists have stepped up to give away all of their sales to charities fighting racial injustice and police brutality. In the wake of the police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless others, a lot of labels and artists are giving their share of sales on Bandcamp to charities in the fight against racial injustice and these fucking cops who can’t stop brutalizing the protestors against police brutality.
Also check out black owned-labels and artists to buy from on Bandcamp today.
I apologize if these aren’t in perfect alphabetical order, these police helicopters circling overhead for no reason are driving me mad. We are peacefully protesting -- the cops have turned it into a war zone.
