The makers of "Kodaikanal Won't", "Chennai Poromboke Paadal" and "Jananaayagam" are all set to shoot their next campaign music video. "Kabaddi" -- A Justice Rocks Production -- on air pollution in Chennai features Sofia Ashraf and Tamil Hip-hop artist Logan. Donate generously to help us make music to reclaim our air.
Shot in the poisoned playgrounds of North Chennai with the dystopic smokestacks of Manali and Ennore as the backdrop, "Kabaddi" is Chennai's assertive demand to reclaim the right to clean air. Projecting the voice of Chennai's youth, the song reminds people that air pollution harms children, hurts their lungs and robs them of their right to play and to enjoy a healthy childhood. Justice Rocks needs your help.
Kodaikanal Won't, a video about Anglodutch MNC Unilever's mercury pollution in Kodaikanal, India, went viral and the campaign that followed forced the company to compensate nearly 600 workers who were injured due to exposure to toxic mercury in their workplace. Chennai Poromboke Paadal, a song to valourise wetlands, and open, unbuilt spaces, has been reckoned as a powerful critique of modern development and has projected the issue of Chennai's beleaguered wetlands to a global stage.
Justice Rocks productions are not just nice-sounding and good-looking music videos. They are powerful tools of activism wielded to effect positive social change. All our productions are crowd-funded and volunteer-driven. Help us make Kabaddi an effective tool in the campaign to clear Chennai's air!
