Rage Against the Machine frontman and outspoken activist Zack De La Rocha is voicing his support for the ongoing Occupy Wall Street movement. The fiery emcee wrote a tribute poem to the Occupy protestors around the country that are involved in the ongoing conflict.
“This poem is dedicated to the Occupy movement whose courage is changing the world. Stay Strong. We are winning,” said la Rocha.
An excerpt is included below:
"The beginning spills through city veins Into the arteries
And under powers poison clouds
We move like the shadows
Through the alley ways
Through nightmares bought and sold as dreams Through barren factories
Through boarded schools
Through rotting fields
Through the burning doors of the past
Through imaginations exploding
To break the curfews in our minds..."
"Our actions awaken dreams of actions multiplied
A restless fury
Once buried like burning embers
Left alone to smolder
But together stacked under the walls of a dying order
All sparks are counted
Calloused hands raised in silence
Over the bonfire of hope unincorporated
It's flame restores tomorrows meaning
Across the graveyards of hollow promises
As gold dipped vultures pick at what is left of our denial..."
