about

A rallying cry for those opposed to the Tories' cynical austerity policies.

lyrics

Fighting Injustice (Andy Worthington)

Look at this world in decline
Despite all the victories that were fought for
Centuries spent struggling for the vote
And for our right to healthcare and education

But now we're running out of time
Our politicians have turned into pimps and whores
Our NHS is being choked
And there are no jobs for the young in this broken down nation

Chorus

If you ain't fighting injustice
You're living on the dark side oh yeah
If you ain't fighting injustice
You're living on the dark side oh yeah

Our economies have been raped
By those who claim that they are the masters
We've had 30 years of financial pillage and plunder
Since the regulators stepped out of the picture

Then came the global crash of '08
But no one expected what would come after
Instead of the thieves going under
We printed lots of new money to make them all richer

Chorus (repeat)

Although shelter is a human right
Homelessness is increasing
Food bank use is on the rise
And workers can't afford to live in the capital

With no rent controls in sight
And one-bedroom flats fetching half a million
This is a super-rich paradise
But one where the rest of us are disposable

Chorus (repeat)
