Bandcamp announced that on Friday from noon (Pacific Time) for 24 hours (add 8 hours for Irish time), for any purchase made through the site, they will donate 100% of their share towards the American Civil Liberties Union, the organisation who are on the frontline of representing and fighting for people affected by the Muslim ban, executively ordered by Trump last week.

The order bars entry to the US for 90 days for travellers, immigrants and refugees from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and Libya.

Ethan Diamond, Bandcamp Founder & CEO wrote a post about why they are doing it and also shared some music from the affected countries which they suggest you buy on Friday.

Yesterday, I made a playlist of artists and immigrants affected by the ban.
