Vajont tribute song-video by KANSEIL

Italian band KANSEIL released a new video for the ending song of their new album "Doin Earde" released earlier. The band explained the following : VAJONT, October 9th 1963 - October 9th 2015 This song is about the Vajont’s tragedy, 260 million m³ rocks fell on the artificial lake of the dam, causing death to 2000 people and destroying the town of Longarone and the villages nearby all at once, with a huge deadly wave. The landslide was natural, in an uninhabited place, but the reason this is an unforgivable crime is that the SADE society didn’t just build the world’s biggest dam in the wrong place, despite many opposed its building, but also did nothing for alert and evacuate the area even if they knew days before it was going to fall. This happened for greed, and fear of responsibility. As usual, culprits remain unpunished, while thousands of people lost everything.
