Freedom to Sing – NZ Protest Songs

Standing up for your rights has long linked arms with singing for your rights. This  Spotlight collection brings together some of New Zealand’s great protest songs, with subject matter ranging from Māori pride and resistance ('Parihaka'), to the nuclear free campaign ('French Letter', 'Nuclear Waste' and 'Chains') and the environment ('I Care'), to South African rugby tours ('Don’t Go' and 'Azania'). As you exercise your 'Freedom to Sing', remember that 'There is No Depression in New Zealand'.
