Last year, Adam Yauch Park in Brooklyn was vandalized with graffiti of swastikas and words that read “Go Trump.” In response, organizers hosted a rally at the park condemning the hate speech, with surviving Beastie Boys member Ad-Rock speaking to everyone in attendance for the event.
“I’m assuming that we’re all here today because we”re thinking the same thing,” he said. “Spray painting swastikas in a children’s playground is a messed up thing to do. And for many of us, it has special meaning, because this park is named for Adam Yauch, who was my friend and bandmate for over 30 years, but he was also someone who taught nonviolence in his music, in his life, to all of us and to me. But this is more about someone in New York City linking Nazi Germany to Donald Trump in a ‘hell yeah’ kind of way in a park where children play.”
“If you’re able to volunteer, volunteer…if you’re a musician, write that anthem. If you’re a writer, write. Take what you’re good at, and what you truly enjoy, and lend your services to the causes you care most about. ‘Cause we can’t, and we won’t, and we don’t stop.”
