They might be in Australia, but they heard the footsteps.
Bruce Springsteen, speaking on behalf of himself and the E Street Band at the band’s Sunday, Jan. 22 show in Perth, Australia, declared himself and the E Streeters to be part of a “new American resistance” as witnessed by the Women’s Marches that took place in multiple U.S. cities, including Asbury Park, and around the world on Saturday, Jan 21.
“We’re a long way from home, and our hearts and spirits are with the hundreds of thousands of women and men that marched yesterday in every city in America and in Melbourne who rallied against hate and division and in support of tolerance, inclusion, reproductive rights, civil rights, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, the environment, wage equality, gender equality, healthcare, and immigrant rights,” said Springsteen in a statement that was also posted on his social media sites. . “We stand with you. We are the new American resistance.”
