CULTURE AND EVENTS    

Remembrance This week, we’ll be featuring songs from musicians who have stood up against the forces of war and violence.  Today’s song is by Buffalo Springfield, who wrote “For what it’s worth” to protest against a curfew that was set up in California to prevent young people from being out on the streets after 10 pm when they were going out to clubs to listen to their favourite bands.  Buffalo Springfield’s song soon became used as a protest song throughout the sixties and seventies as people were protesting against the American War in Vietnam. Stay tuned for other songs of protest and remembrance all week as we prepare for our Remembrance Day ceremony on Friday.
