Ponte Pilas - Manifesto
We are a Berlin-based rock ‘n’ roll band called Ponte Pilas. Back in October 2019 we travelled to Weimar, invited to play for a big FFF demonstration. We arrived expecting to do our thing and to also protest for a cause that has been very close to our hearts since the band started.
We had no idea what a powerful and long-lasting impact this trip would have on us. We got to see first hand the conviction and determination that those behind FFF move forward with. We shared thoughts, feelings and food with them and we were truly inspired and awakened about the reality of the world we live in as well as these young people’s passion and capacity to change it.
It was with all this in mind that we wrote ’Tinderbox’.
We want to bring awareness of the climate crisis, as well as to deservedly honour FFF to a rock ‘n’ roll audience and the rest of the world. To do so, we have put together a video with young activists from the Galapagos Islands. Three members of the band come from Ecuador and are very concerned about what has been happening there due to the climate crisis. Your protests over the world and what we witnessed first-hand in Weimar have been our motivation.
We are convinced that this will lead people to get inspired, find out more about the reality of the challenge we face and, most importantly, to take action now.
