Solidarity Forever! Honoring Pete Seeger

January 28, 2014 | Category: Union Issues | 0 comments |
Pete Seeger, the American folk icon, legendary songwriter, and unrelenting progressive activist, died on Monday at the age of 94.

In loving memory of Pete Seeger, please enjoy his recording of Ralph Chaplin's "Solidarity Forever." Read more
