Misjustice is a weird word. It’s a euphemistic way of talking about the miscarriage of justice in a way that an injustice doesn’t quite capture.
#MisjusticeProducesHate looks at one of the all-time misjustice scenarios, the Dreyfus Affair where Captain Alfred Dreyfus was falsely accused by the French Third Republic of treason in 1894. Despite Ferdinand Walsin Esterházy being identified as the real culprit, Dryfus’ situation had become so political that the case against him wasn’t resolved until 1906 despite all the evidence demonstrating his innocence.
These kind of so-called state mandated cover ups are generally considered conspiracy theory but false accusations are quite commonplace and there are myriads of examples in the US Justice System of Police, District Attorneys, Judges, Wardens and others abusing their authority by all kinds of illegal manners. It was so prominent at one point that German immigrants in the US, around the same time as Dryfus himself was facing false accusations, ended up banning together to form a legal defense against such claims. This group would eventually become what we know as http://www.legal-aid.org/ which seeks to provide legal representation to the under-represented.
Our look at the so-called Justice System comes through he eyes of metal, punk and hardcore which all have a unique relationship with it (mostly antagonistic, as you well might have guessed.
We’ll experience the new track, “Prison Skin,” by Persofone with it’s progressive antagonism. Then we’ll double down on the violence with the likes of Beyond Creation, All Shall Perish, Cognitive before putting your ears on trial with the likes of Obsidium, Obsidia, Capharnaum , Cephalopod, Summer Dying, Zonaria and Your Memorial
