Revolution - The Beatles

A massacre is happening. Who will stop It? The 99% will stop it.

Shelly's poem still speaks today.  People are being massacred everyday in America and the World.  People are being massacred through unjust and corrupt policies controlled by the 1%.  People are dying due to endless wars, a for profit healthcare industry (47,000 people die from no insurance in America)  and deregulation of corporations resulting in lax safety conditions effecting our environment, food supply industries and drug industries.
The Peterloo Massacre
Written on the occasion of the massacre carried out by the British Government at St Peter's Field, Manchester 1819, Shelley begins his poem with the powerful images of the unjust forms of authority of his time "God, and King, and Law" - and he then imagines the stirrings of a radically new form of social action: "Let a great assembly be, of the fearless, of the free". The crowd at this gathering is met by armed soldiers, but the protestors do not raise an arm against their assailants:
"Stand ye calm and resolute,
Like a forest close and mute,
With folded arms and looks which are
Weapons of unvanquished war.
And if then the tyrants dare,
Let them ride among you there,
Slash, and stab, and maim and hew,
What they like, that let them do.
With folded arms and steady eyes,
And little fear, and less surprise
Look upon them as they slay
Till their rage has died away
Then they will return with shame
To the place from which they came,
And the blood thus shed will speak
In hot blushes on their cheek.
Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number,
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you-
Ye are many — they are few" Shelley
