Thread Name: Occupy Wall Street Songs
Subject: RE: Occupy Wall Street Songs
Please click here for a video of me singing Union Warriors at Occupy Wall Street in New York City on October 7, 2011. I originally wrote Union Warriors to honor NYC transit workers who went out on strike in 2005, and in honor of their union leader Roger Toussaint. However, it is really I tribute to all the warriors of organized labor, past, present and future.
I have been singing Union Warriors every time I have been at the OWS encampment in Zuccotti Park. My most receptive audiences have been at lunch time when union workers from nearby construction projects visit the site.
