"Each year many people mark November 2nd as 'All Souls Day' - a day to remember the dead. On November 2nd 2004, George W. Bush was returned to the White House for his second term as U.S. President. Immediately, he launched a brutal attack on the Iraq city of Fallujah. We will not forget what he has done." -Teresa Healy

"This was my take on the tragedy of September eleventh. I'd read about a 'Terrorist kit' which had been found in a hotel room some time after the event. It gave instructions on how to keep a low profile; to go to and from work a different way each day; get/steal as many false passports as possible, etc. And then, at the end, there was a prayer to say before setting out on their suicide mission. I couldn't imagine what kind of god these people were praying to that would allow them to be successful on such a mission." -John McClafferty

A Daniel, un chico de la guerra

Introduzione dell'autore:



Español
Italiano

Esta es quizás una de mis canciones más amargas. De por sí la dictadura argentina llamada "el proceso" fue una sin razón como lo es cualquier intento de asumir el poder en un país sin el consentimiento de la mayoría de sus habitantes. Más aún cuando se interrumpe por medio de la violencia la democracia representada por unos gobernantes elegidos a través de las urnas. En algún otro lugar de estos escritos dije que el ejercito argentino fue creado para luchar contra los propios argentinos y pese a ser una dura y aparentemente ligera opinión la historia desafortunadamente no me contradice en absoluto. Como colofón a una actitud totalmente irregular de gobierno de de-facto, a estos "salvadores" de la Patria, no se les ocurre nada mejor que invadir las islas Malvinas, que si bien todos los que hemos nacido en Argentina defendemos el derecho irrenunciable...

"Our government is torturing them, too" -David Rovics.

A quanto mi risulta, è l'unica canzone sinora presente in tutte le CCG che parli dello scandalo dei prigionieri della base di Guantánamo.

So far I know, it's the only song in the AWS collection telling about the Guantanamo base prisoners scandal.

Centre For Political Song

Dedicated to the G. W. Bush Administration

"A Patriot's Anthem could be considered a parody of The Star Spangled Banner because it follows the tune exactly, but, as it was written by an American patriot loathe to parody the national anthem, it is more accurately a political statement of disgust for the policies of the Bush administration. Those in sympathy with my views have compared it to burning a flag in disgust."

Die Kinder von Izieu

[1994]
Testo e musica di Reinhard Mey
Text und Musik von Reinhard Mey
Paroles et Musique de Reinhard Mey

L'episodio raccontato in questa bella canzone di Reinhard Mey è purtroppo notissimo, anche per un recente film ad esso ispirato. Su di esso si veda anche Izieu di Claude Hazan.
Nel 1944 la Gestapo di Lione, agli ordini del criminale Klaus Barbie, mandò due camion nel villaggio di Izieu. La missione era quella di sterminare i bambini di un orfanotrofio conosciuto come "La Maison d'Izieu". In un raid assolutamente insensato, 44 bambini ebrei tra i 4 e i 13 anni e sette tutori adulti furono ammassati in un camion, inviati a Auschwitz e immediatamente gassati.

Sui fatti di Izieu si vedano i seguenti due siti:

1. auschwitz.dk
2. izieu.alma.fr

Nell'ultima strofa della canzone si avverte chiaramente l'influenza di Nuit et brouillard di Jean Ferrat.

In 1944 the Nazi Gestapo from Lyon,... (Continues)
