NEW VIDEO : Broken Social Scene - "Meet Me In The Basement"

Toronto-based Broken Social Scene has released a video highlighting the myriad of global issues and conundrums that are wrapped up in a meeting such as the G20 in Toronto, including objectification of men and women, right to protest and assembly, poverty, weapons proliferation, responsible governance and the culture of oil. With so many questions unanswered and packed up in just under 4 minutes, it's an apt portrayal of the overwhelming barrage of things our generation faces, and the reason why so many disparate groups were present in civil protests in Toronto during the weekend of the G20.
