Una Nueva Internacional de la Humanidad

Billy Bragg. Una nueva Internacional. Sin perder nada del poder de evocación y protesta de la original, pero actualizando su mensaje:


"Pongamos fin a la ignorancia racista ... La libertad es mero privilegio salvo que sea disfrutada por todos y cada uno".
"No construyamos muros que nos dividen ... O vivimos juntos o moriremos sólos"
"Cuando luchemos, provocados por su agresión, inspirémonos en la vida y en el amor"
"El ideal internacional une a la raza humana".

Hoy el internacionalismo sólo puede expresarse como universalismo.

Stand up, all victims of oppression
For the tyrants fear your might
Don't cling so hard to your possessions
For you have nothing if you have no rights

Let racist ignorance be ended
For respect makes the empires fall
Freedom is merely privilege extended
Unless enjoyed by one and all

So come brothers and sisters
For the struggle carries on
The Internationale
Unites the world in song

So comrades come rally
For this is the time and place
The international ideal
Unites the human race

Let no one build walls to divide us
Walls of hatred nor walls of stone
Come greet the dawn and stand beside us
We'll live together or we'll die alone

In our world poisoned by exploitation
Those who have taken, now they must give
And end the vanity of nations
We've but one Earth on which to live

So come brothers and sisters...
So comrades come rally...

And so begins the final drama

In the streets and in the fields
We stand unbowed before their Armour
We defy their guns and shields

When we fight, provoked by their aggression
Let us be inspired by life and love
For though they offer us concessions
Change will not come from above

So come brothers and sisters...
So comrades come rally...

For this is the time and place
The international ideal
Unites the human race
