JIMMY CLIFF at the ABC GLASGOW
Jimmy Cliff has still got it.The Voice , The rhythms and The Moves.
His songs had an added dimension of being so relevant to the movements fighting entrenched elites the World over as the disenfranchised and the impotent neglected masses fight for their inalienable rights.Songs like this one give them a mission statement , something so lacking in the "occupy" movement.It is hard to believe some of these songs were written nearly 40 years ago.
And as one comment in the video says this "Gotta become the anthem for the global peace, justice and equality movement."
But no change comes without a struggle and a long fight , but this song reminds us the forces ranged against Justice will fall no matter how powerful they appear to be , the resistance must go on.
