Tom Morello Headlines Occupy Wall Street Anniversary Concert In NYC


Protesters took back the streets of Manhattan's Financial District on September 17 to commemorate the one year anniversary of the beginning of the Occupy Wall Street protests in Zucotti Park. Tom Morello of Rage against the Machine was on hand to lead a concert and offer words of encouragement to those involved.

Morello and his backup band, the Nightwatchmen, played a set which included the topical "We are the 99%," a cover of Bruce Springsteen's "The Ghost of Tom Joad" and a cover of Woody Guthrie's classic tune "This Land Is Your Land."

"Hopefully today your eyes, ears, hearts and minds have been revolutionized by what you've seen and heard on the stage, and tomorrow you can go out to confront injustice wherever it rears its ugly head: your homes, your schools, your place of work, your city and country and the world at large," Morello shouted during the set.
