FOOD FIGHT - Saving Kids From Processed Junk

U svetu u kome prehrambene prerađevine proždiru ljudske organizme i životnu sredinu, jedan dečak pokušava da pobegne od nezasite industrije koja proždire njegov komšiluk.

Earth Amplified i New Message Media s ponosom predstavljaju novi komični muzički video, pod nazivom Food Fight (Borba za hranu), kao i prateći školski kurikulum, dizajniran za onlajn i klasično školsko podučavanje tinejdžera/ki o realnostima našeg (američkog, prim. prev.) prehrambenog sistema.

Mi smatramo da najveća nada za korenite promene počinje sa temeljom za budućnost - našim mladima - pa zato Food Fight predstavlja kombinaciju muzike i filma sa školskim kurikulumom, da bi pomogao nastavnicima da zainteresuju svoje đake za goruće problemime sa kojima se suočavamo.

Mane globalne ekonomije se najbolje razotkrivaju ako pogledate naš prehrambeni sistem: propadanje zemljišta i fabrička poljoprivreda koja osiromašuje naftne resurse, ekonomske mere koje doprinose gladovanju ljudi u inostranstvu i bolestima i gojaznosti kod kuće, sve to upakovano u tržišnu kampanju koja treba da nametne društveni ugovor "prvo kupi, a pitanja nemoj da postavljaš nikad" - samo kupi ono što ti oni kažu da kupiš i jedi/umukuni.

Ako nam je stalo do naše dece, do nas samih, i naše planete, vreme je da razotkrijemo istinu na širem nivou, i da se nadamo da će dovoljno boraca i borkinja za hranu pojačati napore u borbi za ostvarivanje promena koje su nam potrebne.

Ovaj video je urbani gangsterski film okrenut naglavačke — umesto uličnih siledžija koji dolaze da kradu novac i namirnice, u ovom filmu tipovi u odelima stavljaju stvari NA rafove. Pravo zlo za našu decu i Ameriku predstavljaju ljudi na vrhu; zločini velikih poljoprivrednih korporacija u prodavnicama mnogo su gori od bilo čega što bi bilo ko mogao da uradi tokom pljačke.

Priča ide ovako...

Food Fight prati jednog dečaka kroz njegovu ubilačku stvarnost. Lokalna prodavnica ubija njegov komšiluk - bukvalno. Od vodiča koji podseća na Morpheusa (iz filma Matrix, prim. prev.), on saznaje za skrivenu stvarnost koja se nalazi s one strane hrane koju kupuje, i on mora da odluči da li će uzeti narandžastu pilulu od šargarepe ili Red Bull pilulu.


Tekst pesme

VANDANA SHIVA:
"Once they have established the norm --
that seed can be owned as their property --
royalties can be collected.
We will depend on them
for every seed we grow
of every crop we grow.
If they control seed, they control food, they know it; it's strategic.
It's more powerful than bombs.
It's more powerful than guns.
This is the best way to control the populations of the world."

CHORUS:
That's what the streets them say.
That's what police them say.
That's what the Babylon say.
Put cola upon lips
and get popped the same way now.
That's what The Pentagon say.
That's what the generals say.
That's what the empire say.
Put death down your throat,
you get dropped the same way.

SEASUNZ:
There's a war going on inside,
no man is safe from:
DDTs, PCBs,
every corner in the hood got a KFC
or McD's. It's crack speed like RED
Bull-ish they pulpit -- so caffeine,
Kit Kat like a click-clack holes in your genes
Cuz everything at market ain't all what it seems.
Little Debbie bussing biscuits at sugar-high fiends.
Ain't nothing but a G thing --
GMO, MSG, genocide of street gangs.
Aspartame or street cane.
Monsanto is Rambo.
Round Up with ammo.
Who would have known you can die from a diet
Diabetes and the -itis from the dairy and the dose
of the high fructose
cuz your ribs too close
so you might start a riot.
Might be a FOOD FIGHTER!

CHORUS REPEATED

SEASUNZ:
They shootin'!
Made you look
at the labels on the food that you cook.
Just say no to cocoa box
cuz when you Google the ingredients, you might get got.
Is your milk on drugs? Cuz your brain on Fox.
Factory farming spawning the Meatrix plot,
Globally warming us all, enough cows and NOx
driving the climate, driving a hummer or not.
Drive-in like a drive-by.
E.coli served super sized with a side of super lies.
so tell me what's more gangsta than that?
Bullets or burgers both blaze burners to black.
Breakfast is a little like Texas,
Petro is everything that you're eating on
My pesto is backyard like choppin' chard.
My school lunch pack a punch.

FOOD FIGHT IS ON!

CHORUS REPEATED

STIC.MAN:
What's Beef?
Beef is when you're 12 years old and obese
clogged arteries, can't see your own feet
until you're up in ICU, guaranteed to be an 'I see you"
From that processed food.
Suicide. It's a suicide.
Don't want no microwaves, no pesticides.
Fast food's a slow death in disguise.
It's the wild wild westernized world of deception and lies.
What's Beef?
Beef is when you starve in a famine.
Nothing won't grow and the land stays barren.
Pollution in the river, mercury in the salmon.
What sense do it make, being at war with the planet?
We're at war for the mind so impressionable.
Instead of vegetables,
we reach for Red Bulls.
Poor diets kill more brothers than pistols.
We're fighting for our lives like Michael Vic's pit bulls.
Dog eat dog, America eats the young,
We die from beef, but more from meat than the gun.
Bullets for breakfast and mass murder meals.
Enemy of the state, and your plate is the battlefield
in this FOOD FIGHT!
