[noticias] Randy Blythe y su lado mas político: se vuelve activista medioambiental

En EEUU hay una gran controversia por la posible construcción de un viaducto de aceite en Dakota que podría contaminar de manera grave única fuente de agua de la reserva nativa Rock Indian.

Varios protestantes llevan días acampando en la zona para hacer oir su voz, y entre ellos ahora se encuentra Randy Blythe de Lamb Of God.

No es la primera vez que Blythe expresa de manera abierta sus ideas políticas y su compromiso social, tema que lo ha llevado a ser bastante respetado en la escena del metal. Lo que ha dicho es lo siguiente:

I am a surfer, and a true son of the South Eastern Coast of the United States. This means I spend a lot of time in the relatively warm waters of Virginia & North Carolina; in fact I spend as much time in those waters as possible given my job as a touring musician- whenever I can I ride waves, I fish, & I swim in the ocean. I have not been able to surf for a few months now because of touring with 2 different bands, & I am dying to go catch a wave. So now when I am finally off tour, why am I going far inland to freezing North Dakota (of all places), where people are getting tear gassed & arrested, instead of to the much warmer beach to chill? I am going because as a surfer, I know that all of our planet’s water is connected, and that you cannot poison a river without it eventually leading to the sea. I am going because there are people trying to stop a river from being poisoned, & they need firewood, coffee, wool blankets, winter sleeping bags, & strong hands that know how to swing an ax- I have those things, so I am driving them there. I am going & bringing my Ojibwe bro David so that he can hoist his tribal flag & represent his people, & I can represent the South Eastern punk rock wave riders. I am going because I have been planning this for weeks, my heart tells me it is the right thing to do, & my spirit is restless & will not sit still inside of me until I do something besides talk about how horrible it is we are destroying our planet. So people of Standing Rock, @rollingcloud1 & I are on our way from Minnesota- we come in peace, but make no mistake- we are coming in full effect, & we are coming to stand with you. #nodapl #waterislife #hokahey
