Inspired by here brother Pete’s marching and singing for Occupy Wall Street – as reported in an earlier news item – the wonderful Peggy Seeger organised a sing together as part of the Occupy London demonstrations on 9th November. Among others taking part were Chumbawamba, Billy Bragg, Leon Rosselson, Steve Knightly and Tom Morello. There seems to be no online coverage of Peggy singing at the event, but some of Peggy’s new songs dealing with the Occupy campaigns can be found on her website for free download. A couple of lines from Doggone, Occupation Is On captures the mood well:
The top one percent are feeling fine
We’re here to represent the other ninety nine.
