Pussy Riot’s Powerful New Video Calls Out Police Brutality, Set At Banksy’s ‘Dismaland’

“Refugees In” features a dark confusion of rioting, police brutality and rebellion.


The band Pussy Riot is back with a vengeance now that Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova have been freed from prison. And, what better place to stage their latest – and controversial – music video for the song “Refugees In” than Banksy’s Dismaland theme park? 

Reports Noisey, the group shot the video (above) in the post-apocalyptic gloom of Bansky’s famous art installation which took over the UK last September. “Refugees In” features a dark confusion of rioting, police brutality and rebellion, making controversial statements like “Fuck the police. Like we are in Greece.”

Nadya Tolokonnikova shared in the interview that the debut performance was liberating for the group, as it was the band’s “first organized, legal concert” and they were finally free to play their music without fear of persecution.

The lyrics “Refugees In” follow: 

Met in Europe by razor wires, Governments here fucking liars Desperate people who need to flee Seeking refuge by land and sea Push for borders, get no peace Fuck the police like we’re in greece

Cage me in cage me out
Refugees in, nazis out
Governments here should feel the shame Fucking liars, you’re to blame

Fuck the police
Like we are in Greece Destroy piece by piece This conservative disease

Huff and puff and smash it up
Burst, blast, blow it up
Cage me in cage me out
Refugees in, nazis out
Governments here should feel the shame Fucking liars, you’re to blame

Cage me in cage me out
Refugees in, nazis out
Governments here, should feel the shame, Fucking liars, you’re to blame
You’re to blame

Cage me in cage me out
Refugees in, nazis out
Governments here, should feel the shame, Fucking liars, you’re to blame
You’re to blame

Cage me in cage me out
Refugees in, nazis out
Governments here, should feel the shame, Fucking liars, you’re to blame
You’re to blame

Bombing people out of homes
We want peace, not fucking drones Push, push borders away!
Push borders, do it today!
Human beings – not a swarm Injustice – government norm

Cage me in cage me out
Refugees in, nazis out
Governments here, should feel the shame, Fucking liars, you’re to blame
You’re to blame
