Note: This is our third post in the spirit of Arab Spring and the Occupy Movement’s Western Fall by showing a music video a day until this weekend from the prolific songwriter and singer, David Rovics.
And since this is Veterans Day, please watch the ‘Song for Bradley Manning’ immediately following the ‘John Brown’ music video, especially in the light of the Occupy Burlington (Vermont) homeless military veteran who took his own life yesterday. And Kayvan Sabehgi, the second Iraq war veteran hospitalized following involvement in Occupy Oakland protests. Another veteran, Scott Olsen, suffered a fractured skull also in Oakland. How many veterans have committed suicide, hospitalized or are amongst the walking wounded? No wonder there is talk of revolution in the air.
