“Jam for Freedom is spearheading the pro-freedom revolution happening globally as a response to restrictions on our basic human rights to work, travel and live.”
The musical group Jam For Freedom tour the UK and play live music, in aid of mental health and to spread the message that we need to learn our rights and restore our freedoms. Founded and lead by Cambel McLaughlin in December 2020, established group members invite other musicians and even audience members to join in with the performance, to pick up an instrument or microphone and jam along. During the 2020-2021 winter lockdown they were the only touring band in the UK, and carried on playing despite multiple arrests and shutdowns of their gigs.
Eric Clapton and Van Morrison, legendary musicians who have released their own anti-lockdown songs, have come out in support of Jam For Freedom’s mission.
Jam For Freedom has become an international movement, with people from 11 different countries all around the world creating their own Jam For Freedom band, uniting musicians and playing events.
At Resistance GB, we’ve been documenting Jam For Freedom’s journey since February 2021.
