Subject: RE: Folk Against Fascism
I also want to say "Well done!" to JoanC.
I have a MySpace page but don't have a FaceBook account. I'll jump on board when the MySpace page is launched.
Dave listed these examples of folk singer's involvement in politics:
Folk singers were among those on the CND marches and sang the songs in the folk clubs.
Folk singers demonstrated at the Anti- Vietnam rallies and sang the songs in the folk clubs.
Folk singers demonstrated against the Poll Tax and sang anti - Thatcher songs in the folk clubs.
Expanding this list outside of Britain, Folk singers sang songs during the civil rights movement in the USA.
It might be a good idea to include such a listing on the FaceBook/MySpace pages or at least on the upcoming Folk Against Fascism website.
What else can be added to this list?
