Since the lockdown got relaxed, most musicians have been actively performing at shows, but recently, it’s not been ending well with many of them.

So you’re saying it’s okay for police to abuse their power on citizens and we in no way should react in a way that angers them whilst standing for ourselves and refusing to bribe them because that will result in the abusing their power and our right to freedom of expression-
