Une vague de protestations globales qui transitent par le Canada, l'Angleterre, la France, l'Espagne, l'Ukraine, les États-Unis et bien au delà. Cette pièce radiophonique est inspirée du l'usage fragmenté de textes politiques du compositeur contemporain Luigi Nono ainsi que par sa méthode de traitement des objets du monde réel comme de potentielles compositions musicales.
