THIS IS THE FINAL STRUGGLE


Originally composed in French, the Internationale is the traditional anthem of Communist and Socialist movements around the world.  Click on the following link to find full downloadable versions of the Internationale in 40 different languages (or watch the mashup below in 47!).  As you might imagine, it's one of my favorite songs.  As the final hours of May Day come to a close lets not forget the message in the madness:

"The State oppresses and the law cheats
Tax bleeds the unfortunate
No duty is imposed on the rich
The rights of the poor is an empty phrase
Enough languishing in custody
Equality wants other laws:
No rights without duties, she says,
Equally, no duties without rights"

"This is the final struggle
  Let us group together, and tomorrow
  The Internationale
  Will be the human race"
