Hurray for the Riff Raff - "Rican Beach"

In “Rican Beach,” frontwoman Alynda Segarra sings a dedication to the Standing Rock water protectors. In a press release, Segarra says:
"This is dedicated to the water protectors of Standing Rock – thank you for your bravery and giving us hope. Also, to the people of Peñuelas, Puerto Rico, who are demanding an end to the AES dumping of coal ash which leads to water contamination – we are with you.

All over the world there are heroes, who, despite suffering generations of oppression, are protecting the land and the future of our humanity. Rican Beach is a fictional place, but it was written with my ancestors in mind. It’s time to call on yours and to always remember: this land was made for you and me."
