Shortly before his untimely death, Jonathan Bowden was being driven back from a Nationalist meeting by Jez Turner. On saying their goodbyes, Jonathan thanked Jez, telling him that he was ‘A fighter and a good man’. Jez later revealed in an interview that this is how he would like to be remembered.
Jonathan Bowden’s appraisal of Jez Turner was the inspiration for my latest song, dedicated to all our political prisoners. All proceeds shall go towards funding a new initiative, The Link, set up to assist prisoners of conscience via letter-writing and other fundamental aid.
If you would like to assist our political prisoners, please download the track via BandCamp (see link below). If you prefer, you can send a direct donation using the PayPal button on the right side bar, with mention ‘The Link’, and the money will be forwarded to those responsible. If you choose the latter option, I will send you an mp3 version of the song, which means less commission paid to BandCamp and, therefore, more for the Cause. Many thanks in advance.
Sing a Song of Freedom
For our prisoners of conscience
Turn the tide, bring back
Our love and honest pride
Cherish our belonging
To these islands once so strong
This must be our song
