Those of us who remember the revolutionary era of the 60s recall the tremendous power of music to spread a message of hope for change based on universal love and fierce resistance to injustice. In different styles and in different ways, musicians from the Doors to Joan Baez to the Beatles painted a picture of a world gone mad and the type of world that we could create together if we share the same dream and the williingness to work to make that world a reality. On July 28 on SFPI Radio, our special guests were Anne Feeney and George Mann, two of my favorite folk singers and social justice advocates. George is also the producer of the great collection of songs Until You Come Home, which was created in reponse to the Welcome Home campaign to help returning veterans readjust and cope with PTSD. Folk music has a long history of being used to rally the People in common cause for justice. For over 25 years, Anne Feeney has been a singer-activist for the union movement, single payer and other causes that strike at the roots of corporate power. George Mann is a lifelong antiwar activist and singer whose work speaks to his dream that war can end if we choose to demand it. This show will be an exploration of how and why music can be such an important part of the effort to unify humanity in the cause of liberty and justice for all while their is still a chance to make that dream a reality. SFPI Radio is the international talk show designed to allow those struggling for social justice around the world to talk to each other about how we can support efforts to promote justice, democracy and peace in every nation.
