Soundtrack to the Green Revolution

Bob Marley - Redemption Song

This film footage is of Bob Marley and his band in the recording studio. It's a terrific glimpse of the music legend singing one of his greatest inspirational songs. And it achieves a great poignancy with his imminent death. Redemption Song, in a way, captures the spirit of his music and life, and his devotion to the downtrodden and the oppressed.

It is so sad that he has died. This world took a very dark turn when Bob Marley and John Lennon died. We need their voices today more than ever.

thanks for posting this. Despite the great trauma the people of Iran--especially the women and young people--experience, something amazing is happening. This is bringing people together around the world, rallying around the cause of freedom and the highest democratic ideals> In the meantime we can only long for peace and safety for those who have become our friends.
