Free Download against Free Trade: Rock Music to #EndWTO


Tabloid_FrontAnti-WTO protest comes in many shapes and colours – and this one in the form of a free Music download: On “Rock against the Round”, the Musicians against the WTO (MAW) Project has put their protest into music and lyrics. The Philippine artists have performed 12 Songs that are diverse in style – Folk, Punkrock, Rap – but unified in their message: Bring an end to the WTO agenda of trade liberalisation. This advocacy is expressed in song titles such as

“Welcome to the Free World”, “Vampire Sam (the global order)”, and  “Changes (justice not politics)”. The topics of the songs include “poverty and inequality, hunger and food insecurity, commodification of lives and natural resources, global hegemony and Domination”.

More Information on the Project and the link to the free download can be found here:
