Workers of the World Unite

Billy Bragg is a staple round these parts and there’s pretty much no date that would make more sense to post him than today, May Day.  He’s not only practically synonymous with activism and worker solidarity, but he’s also a damn great songwriter.

Here’s “Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards,” from the particularly amazing 1988 album, Worker’s Playtime.   It may not make you take to the streets, but I hope it makes you think a little bit.  He’s good for that.

Go on –  join the struggle while you may…the Revolution is just a t-shirt away.
