Mic Check from The Battle Of Los Angeles - Rage Against The Machine
[Update 11/28:Live Blog for #Occupy Movement: Philly, LA Occupations Survive Eviction.]
[For those who may have noticed - and I thank you if you did - I was too distracted yesterday to put up a post. No, the movement is not dead - I was attacked by nefarious Trojans and spent the day engaged in a mighty death-match.]
With this mic deviceGosztola's liveblog, updated for Sunday: Live Blog for #Occupy Movement: Occupy Philly Eviction in Progress.
I spit nonfiction
Who got tha power
This be my question
Tha mass of tha few in this torn nation?
Tha priest tha book or tha congregation?
Tha politricks who rob and hold down your zone?
Or those who give tha thieves tha key to their homes?
Tha pig who's free to murder one Shucklak
Or survivors who make a move and murder one back?
