Dave dedicates the beloved Internationale to current targets of repression: the Freedom Road Socialist Organization.
For those who may not know: The Internationale is the international song (anthem) of the communist movement, written after the heady days of the Paris Commune. It exists in many versions (all loose translations of the original French). He is here singing a version popular in Britain.
And the Freedom Road Socialist Organization is a group of revolutionary socialists who have been infiltrated, raided and now targeted by grand jury witchhunts. Truly a reasons for comrades to come rally! These are moments that demand solidarity and energy -- in a world that needs a great rebirth of solidarity and around a left that needs to ignite a new radical energy.
