“Protest Song”, as performed by the bands Anti-Flag and Donots, is the Peace Song of the Day for February 4th.
This song has a more punk flavor than most of the Peace Songs we feature. Always fun to try something new.
Excerpt from the lyrics
Protest Song (Justin Sand/Anti-Flag/Donots)
you’ve been to our shows
you’ve sung our songs
now we’re asking you to add to each chorus you’ve sung and
protest, against, injustice, state terror
on the streets of the world
for the disempowered…
back up those words you’ve sung
The Peace Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
