All You Fascists Are Bound To Lose

With the election of Golden Dawn members in Greece and a resurgence of Right Wing hate across the world, and the frightening spectre of a Tony Abbott-led Coalition government, time to drag out the old anti-fascist songs.

“This Machine Kills Fascists” was a sticker that the anti-war, civil-rights folk singer Woody Guthrie had on his guitar. It was allegedly based on slogans painted on the sides of the airplanes used in the Spanish civil war during the 1930s.

Here is Billy Braggs version of the Woody Guthrie song “All You Fascists Bound To Lose”, written in 1942, this version recorded in 1997.
