May Day 2017 Colorado Capitol Building in Denver, Colorado Mira, Willow, (kids singing) and Jason Metter (Dad).
On May one popularly called May Day, kids sang the first Billy Bragg verse and the IWW chorus, modified to replace “his” with “their.”
Stand up all victims of oppression
For the tyrants fear your might
Don’t cling so hard to your possessions
For you have nothing if you have no rights
Let racist ignorance be ended
For respect makes the empires fall
Freedom is merely privilege extended
Unless enjoyed less enjoyed by one and all
‘Tis the final conflict;
Let each stand in their place.
The international working class
Shall free the human race x2 on the chorus
