“Not In My Name” is something of a war cry, as explained by vocalist Crilly Ashes, who explains it both in a political and individual sense:
“”Not in my name. It's a powerful statement. I think it's important to say this is not an omission of guilt. It is a rejection of all the horrible things that are done by those we trusted to protect us, on a global scale, a national scale and in our day-to-day life.
“When taking away tents and blankets is seen as a solution to homelessness, you know something is wrong. When we refuse to support the same people we have displaced, you know something is wrong. I feel like by not speaking out, I am being complicit through inaction.
“It may just be a punk-rock song, but words have power, and if I can use that to make even the smallest difference, then I have to. I won't be complicit through inaction.
Things may carry on regardless, but not in my name.”
