Rocco S : “We’ve all felt at some point that we didn’t deserve to receive any kind of love from anyone. When this happens to us, we also think that we are the only person in the world to whom it happens and that is scary. I hope this topic will help someone realize that this is something more common than they thought and that they are not alone. When the same thing happens to someone as it does to you, it reassures you because you realize that you are not as alone as you thought and that you are not a weirdo.”

It was an urgent issue, which I did from one day to the next, and just the next day I played in an outdoor show; there I read a text that said:
‘Don’t baliés to the kids,
What kind of man are you?
Do not water them with bullets,
that they rain candies, chocolates and love’.
But maybe that has no conjuncture, that is part of the police system, of how poorly formed they are, of what is behind the institution, which is always ominous. Until that moves, the chicxs will continue to suffer and die. No one wants that for their children.”
