  •  The Internationale (9+ / 0-)
    Arise ye workers from your slumbers
    Arise ye prisoners of want
    For reason in revolt now thunders
    And at last ends the age of cant.
    Away with all your superstitions
    Servile masses arise, arise
    We'll change henceforth the old tradition
    And spurn the dust to win the prize.

    So comrades, come rally
    And the last fight let us face
    The Internationale unites the human race.

    No more deluded by reaction
    On tyrants only we'll make war
    The soldiers too will take strike action
    They'll break ranks and fight no more
    And if those cannibals keep trying
    To sacrifice us to their pride
    They soon shall hear the bullets flying
    We'll shoot the generals on our own side.

    So comrades, come rally
    And the last fight let us face
    The Internationale unites the human race.

    No saviour from on high delivers
    No faith have we in prince or peer
    Our own right hand the chains must shiver
    Chains of hatred, greed and fear
    E'er the thieves will out with their booty
    And give to all a happier lot.
    Each at the forge must do their duty
    And we'll strike while the iron is hot.

    So comrades, come rally
    And the last fight let us face
    The Internationale unites the human race.

      President Chavez was a very great revolutionary, but I think he was an even greater teacher for the revolution.

      Telesur TV interviewed literally hundreds and hundreds of people who lined the streets of Caracas to honor Chavez and share their grief.

      What stood out for me was that so very many of them were able to articulate, very expressively, the socialist ideals that Chavez represented in a political sense.  His ideas and values will live on for a long, long time.

      The world has lost a very great man, but in Latin America his ideas will never die.

      Would that Americans could have heard more of his speeches in English.  This would have demolished the U.S. State Department and its puppet media's falsification of his personality and actions. But he was so dangerous to them, I guess they had no alternative but to lie about him.

      Convict Bush, Cheney and their torture cabal. Support universal health care,unions, WikiLeaks and Occupy Wall Street! Time for a totally new, democratic economic system. Turn the corporations into worker cooperatives!
