|Watch your back all oppressors, we are organising.

Dear Gordon Brown,
Your party led us into war after war that we didn't want to fight and you added insult to injury by stripping us of our civil liberties, the very things that make Britain great.
Bringing in ID cards, surrounding us with CCTV and taking away our right to protest doesn't prevent crime, it just increases your grip on us.
Money goes on bailing out banks and buying tanks while the police move in on the homeless by waking them up and pouring water where they sleep. We demand that you put all people before profit because all people are priceless. No more will we fear each other, we are all equal. We will not let greed, sexuality, or colour come between us. Our only enemies are those who try to divide us. We were born free and we want to live free. The people run this country, not unelected leaders. When we stand together as one we are strong because power comes from the bottom up, not the top down.
Watch your back all oppressors, we are organising.
The King Blues
How awesome! Check the band's music out here. :-)
