Listen to “Take ‘Em Down”
Rock band the Dropkick Murphys has released a new song in solidarity with Wisconsin workers who are currently fighting to protect collective bargaining from an all-out assault by titans of industry and their bought politicians. In a statement announcing the song’s release on their blog, the band said:
Hey Everyone, the Dropkick Murphys would like to take a moment to acknowledge the struggles of the working people of Wisconsin and to pledge our support and solidarity by releasing the song “Take Em Down” from our upcoming album. We think it’s appropriate at the moment and hope you like it.
We have also created a limited edition “Take ‘Em Down” t-shirt which will be available for sale shortly at www.dropkickmurphys.com/merch. Proceeds from the “Take ‘Em Down” t-shirt sales will benefit Workers’ Rights Emergency Response Fund (https://afl.salsalabs.com/o/4002/wi-response).
We’ll see you in Wisconsin in a few days,
The Dropkick Murphys Stand With Wisconsin !!!!!
Listen to the song, “Take ‘Em Down” then share it with your fellow union members, friends, family, and social networks. It’s a great protest song that’s sure to get you fired up.
