Sounds of change

Bill McDonald has sent a Youtube film of his new protest song, One Big Corporation, on the wealth gap and bankers. He writes, "I used to mock the outrageous conspiracy theories, but it's clear by now that there really is something behind the talk of a New World Order, and the results have been disastrous for humanity. So here's my song and video about it with some vocal and rap help from fellow musician Dave Hill."

Having written about the disappearance of music as a major part of movements and protests, it occurs to us that we should post such songs from past and present, If you have a song you like particularly send it along.
