Ring It In: songs of peace and justice for the holiday season

The Seattle Labor Chorus has been performing throughout the north west of the US since 1997 in support of everyone fighting for a living wage, and against war and injustice.

Here the chorus presents its collection of non-traditional holiday songs, which satirise the imperialist aims of the US ruling class and the profit-driven motives of corporations.

Stand out tracks include “Oil For The World”, “Hark! The WalMart Banners Say”, “O Little Town of New Orleans” and “Picketline Chanukah”, which was sung to striking workers at the Seattle Times during Chanukah in 2001.
