Eric Garner. Michael Brown. Ezell Ford. John Crawford III. Through these and other names, Americans have grown intimately familiar with the scope of police violence in recent months.

“Snow Patrol’s front man, Gary Lightbody, paid his first public performance tribute to the man he described as making him want to be a writer. From being published as a poet at 15 to winning an Ivor Novello award & penning some of the biggest anthemic hits of our times, Gary places Seamus as a central force in his creative life.

Stepehen Fry is one. Guy Garvey another. To seem them on the stage, screen or on the page makes us feel safer, happier, stronger, more centred and less confused by life and what the hell we’re doing here. I would make Heaney chieftain of that ‘invisible tribe.’” Gary was in conversation with the On Home Ground curator Marie Louise Muir.”

This happened today: a protest in Murietta, California, turning back three buses of undocumented migrants from a Border Patrol Center, where they were expected to be processed. The buses eventually went to San Ysidro.
