Though Bruce Springsteen was performing a concert in Australia over the weekend, his heart was with the many marches taking place in the US.
Taking time out from his set list to address the tens of thousands of people, Springsteen said:
“The E Street Band is glad to be here in Western Australia. But we’re a long way from home, and our hearts and spirits are with the hundreds of thousands of women and men that marched yesterday in every city in America and in Melbourne who rallied against hate and division and in support of tolerance, inclusion, reproductive rights, civil rights, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, the environment, wage equality, gender equality, healthcare, and immigrant rights. We stand with you. We are the new American resistance.”
