Thread Name: Origins: No Nos Moveran (We Shall Not Be Moved)
Subject: Need lyrics to No Nos Moveran in Spanish
I'm looking for the Spanish lyrics to the song "No Nos Moveran". As far as I know the song originated in Spain as an anthem of the Republican forces during the Spanish Civil War in the late 30's. It then became a favourite of leftists, activists, and unions all over the place, and was translated into English as "We Shall Not Be Moved". Joan Baez raised quite a furor in Spain back in the 80's, I think it was, when she sang it there in a series of concerts. The Franco government had long suppressed the song, and people were very excited to hear it sung there again. Most were pleased...some were incensed...depending on their political bent. I have no idea how this chat line business works, so please email me the lyrics if you can. Gracias!
