M.I.A. Drops Video For Politically-Charged 'Borders'

It's pretty obvious from her latest released that M.I.A. isn't exactly pleased with the way that Europe is dealing with it's Syrian refugee crisis at the moment. Borders takes aim at politicians, borders, privilege and journalists, and she has also just dropped a self-directed music video to accompany the track. The video depicts some pretty contronting scenes, depicting the artist alongside refugees as they climb fences, wade through the ocean, and are finally crammed into tiny boats.
