THE FALLOUT – WAR WITHOUT END

footage: “Pig Power (Newsreel #23)” / students take to the streets in New York and Berkeley to protest the Vietnam War

from: “What Is Past Is (Still) Prologue” / 202 / Rebel Time Records / Red Menace Records

Headline in the paper today
About fighting for democracy
Bombs tear human flesh apart
Watch the world turn away
What can I do? What can I say?
I don’t know
What you gonna do? What you gonna say?
You don’t know
Another imperialist action
War without end
Nationalist destruction
War without end
No international reaction
War without end
When it’s all for one
And none for all
Headache in the paper today
About fighting for liberty
Guns shoot civilians to death
Watch the world turn away
Protest seem to fall on dear ears
No one cares?
Apathy fulfilling my fears
No one cares?
Are they going to have the final word?
Am I ever going to be heard?

THE FALLOUT – ACTION TODAY

footage: “We Shall March Again” / A dynamic film of the October 1965 Berkeley Peace march, which builds to a showdown as the marchers meet a solid wall of Oakland police / 1965

from: “(Still) Turning Revolution Into Money” / 2020 / Rebel Time Records / Red Menace Records

When tomorrow comes
I’ll see the sun
Rise up for me
A brand new day

I’ll be ten feet tall
Nothing at all
Gets the best of me
Or my insecurities

Today
Action today
Like the sun, freedom comes, everyday

I’ll never lose
Temptations are refused
Won’t get pushed around
I’ll stand my ground

Today starts rapidly
Feel and force my way
Blind insanity
Tries and retards me

Chorus

Nothing holds a grip
Rigging starts to slip
Scores my brain
Stressed and strained

Never give up the chase
I’m not failing safe
The fight inside of me
Focuses my energy

THE FALLOUT – ANOTHER WAY

footage: “Oil Strike” / Newsreel / 1969: “In January, 1969 oil workers in Northern California struck. The local police and the Standard Oil goon squads attacked the strikers and their families, killing one and injuring others. The striking students from San Francisco State were asked to join the struggle. For the first time workers and students fight together against their common enemy.

from: “(Still) Turning Revolution Into Money” / 2020 / Rebel Time Records / Red Menace Records

Day by day
They try to break your body and take your mind
There’s another way
Stand in union, we’ll be just fine

They’ll try to take your life, try to take your cash
But history teaches every systems must crash
You work so hard to try and make a cent
But everything you try just doesn’t make a dent

You get just enough to keep your mind closed
To prevent the truth from being exposed
No one should vanish without a trace
So get off your ass and get out of this place

The time has come to claim our space
To make our mark and there won’t be no disgrace
Workers of the world there’ll be no mistake
When brothers and sisters are united today

Urban Vietcong – Videos

It’s hard to believe that it’s been two years since Urban Vietcong commenced their Attacco Tour 2019 , a tour which saw them play Germany,  Mexico and Canada. To commemorate this, we’ve put together a few videos featuring footage of the band playing at Hamilton’s This Ain’t Hollywood on October 19, 2019.

URBAN VIETCONG – STORIE TRA BOTTIGLIE E CIMINIERE

from: Storie Tra Bottiglie E Ciminiere / 2018 / Out of Control, Fire and Flames, Rumagna Sgroza, Dure Realite, Rebel Time Records

footage: “Livorno: Unity Against Imperialism” / 1969

footage: Urban Vietcong / Hamilton / October 10, 2019 / Stronger Than Ever Video

A romperci la schiena in fabbrica e cantieri
Nipoti della resistenza coi calli tra le mani
Cresciuti tra un tornio e racconti partigiani
L’orgoglio operaio e’ un leone ferito
Frammentati senza sogni ne paradiso
La lotta di classe è in cassa integrazione
Ricatti quotidiani da un fottuto padrone

Storie vissute tra bottiglie e ciminiere
Tra treni perduti e mani dure come pietre
Storie vissute tra bottiglie e ciminiere
Tra campetti di cemento e schiene chine a bere

Le foto dei cortei sgualcite e scolorite
Ma siamo sempre qua ferite mai guarite
Guesto sistema ancora non ti ha incastrato
Galleggi tra sudore e un disco graffiato
Forza e precisione eran la nostra ragione
Il muro abbattuto a est il nostro sole
Restan nei pugni granelli di sabbia
Nel cuore scheggie di lacrime e rabbia

URBAN VIETCONG – FASTIDIO E AGGREGAZIONE

footage: Urban Vietcong / Hamilton / October 10, 2019 / Stronger Than Ever Video

Bastardi senza gloria
Non scriveremo mai la storia
Generazione fottuta
Tra precariato e cocaina
Tatuaggi e gelatina
Come uomini da copertina
Zero attitudine solo apparenza
Zero senso di appartenenza

Dove sono i ribelli di un tempo
Chi correva controvento
Spargeva sangue sul cemento

Che ogni canzone
Sia come una munizione
Pronta a colpire
A togliere dal torpore

Esci dal branco
Prima di finire al camposanto
Spargi semi di follia
Insegna ai bambini a odiare la polizia

Organizzati confrontati e rifletti
Scrivi sui muri ispirati ai combattenti
Col viso coperto esprimi la tua ragione
Non smettere mai di sognare la tua rivoluzione

Creare fastidio e aggregazione
Nelle menti quiete provocare confusione!

URBAN VIETCONG – CANTICLE DEI CONDANNATI

footage: La Classe Operaia Va In Paradiso (Lulù The Tool) / Italy, 1972 / A conscientious factory worker gets his finger cut off by a machine. Although the physical handicap is not serious, the accident causes him to become more involved in political and revolutionary groups.

Quanti anni quella fabbrica ha divorato
Gioventù vola presto via
A lavoro sottopagato
Ogni giorno pura agonia
Gelida questa notte d’inverno
I demoni ti invitano all’inferno
Prendimi e portami via da qua
Finche il sole ci riabbraccerà
Han rubato il tuo futuro
Vorresti andar dritto contro il muro
Non farti ingabbiare resta ribelle
Esci dal fango punta alle stelle
È un cantico dei condannati
Sogni svaniti e cassa integrati
Ti ritrovi da solo in questa città
Bevi un altro whisky al pub
Domande rivolte alla stella polare, nessuna risposta giunge nel quartiere popolare
Dio di noi si è dimenticato, urla e bestemmia in catena l’operaio
Tra questi palazzi che cadono a pezzi
fucina di tossici e di reietti
È un giocar sempre con la sorte
Tra cicatrici e ossa rotte

footage: Urban Vietcong / Hamilton / October 10, 2019 / Stronger Than Ever Video

Bruciano ancora quegli occhi insanguinati
Come i fratelli dei ghetti americani
A soledad il cuore mio non smette di battere
Pulsa piu forte e continua a combattere
Catene stringono polsi neri
Black power e sempre fieri
Siamo i dannati della terra
Affronteremo questa sporca guerra

La polizia continua a sparare
Pulizia etnica e razziale
Ricorda le pantere nere
Dai quartieri contro il capitale
La disperazione diventi rivoluzione
Lotta di classe senza alcun colore
Come un incendio boschivo
Brucia tutto sul suo cammino

Gettatemi pure all’inferno
Vi prometto odio eterno
Che questa terra sia maledetta

footage: Urban Vietcong / Hamilton / October 10, 2019 / Stronger Than Ever Video

Un orologio è alquanto inutile
Si sfiora la follia dobbiam resistere
Si nasconde il sole non vediamo tramontare
sorrisi che non vediamo scorgere
Ad ogni giro di chiave un po’ si muore dentro
Avvolti da sbarre e grigio cemento
Nessuna carezza familiare ad ogni lamento

Stanotte di nuovo ho sognato l’orizzonte
Il sapore del salmastro e il sole sulla fronte
La pioggia sulla testa e l’odore dell’erba
I brividi sulla pelle e perdersi nelle stelle

Con la mia mente evado e fuggo da questo raggio
Arrivo in Irlanda vedo la dignità di quel 5 maggio
Ammiro Ahed che lotta per la Palestina
Gramsci che riempe i fogli di china
Apo Ocalan che indica la via
Abu Jamal mai a testa china

Come nanni siamo invisibili
la solidarietà ci rende invincibili
No non si può fermare il vento
Degli oppressori saremo tormento

Brigada Roja / Red-Edge Commie-Core

Rebel Time Records is stoked be one of the labels working to release “2007 – 2011 – Discografia Incompleta,” a 19-song cassette retrospective  of the collective works of Mexican red-edge commie-core band Brigada Roja.

The band was founded by Diego Armando, also the founder of our very own Afterboltxebike.

Diego’s label / fanzine Incendiario will be taking care of the physical release, while Rebel Time Records, along with our musical comrades-in-arms Discos Machete, will be working arm-in-arm to take care of the digital release.

According to their bio, Brigada Roja was born in 2007, with the idea of playing hardcore punk with communist lyrics. In August 2009 they released their first album and in December 2009 they released their second album called “We Have Something To Tell You”.

Brigada Roja was the first Mexican band to be part of Rock Proletario Internacional (PRI). Founded in 2005 by Spanish band Nucleo Terco, PRI was “a cultural movement committed to serve our class’ interests … this musical tendency is expressed essentially through the most anti-commercial and popular styles of rock music (punk, oi !, hard core, etc). The values ​​transmitted in its lyrics are the thoughts and ideals of our class.”  PRI bands sang songs “of the socialist revolution, the anti-capitalist struggle, anti-fascism and proletarian pride.” “Proletarian Rock is an expression of struggle, and uses musical notes in order to spread a message of combat against fascism and capitalism. ”

Another bio of the band band stated:  Brigada Roja is from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Members participate in Juventud Comunista de Mexico (Communist Youth of Mexico). Between 2009 and 2010 benefit events were organized by CYM to raise founds for rescue of the 63 bodies of miners who died in a mining accident in Pasta de Conchos, Coahuila, where repeated mining accidents occurred due to negligence of Minera de México and the corruption of México’s federal government. Members have also recently participated in organizing demonstrations in Monterrey for the May 8th National March for Peace, a nation-wide protest calling attention to government corruption and violence in the war on drugs. Brigada Roja is part of Rock Proletario Internacional, an international movement of bands singing about class issues and working-class struggles.

“2007 – 2011 Discorgafia Incompleta has been released on September 23, 2021. Available on all digital platforms, ie, Spotify, Bandcamp, Itunes, Apple, Youtube, etc.

Why September 23rd in particular? It’s an important date in the history of the Mexican left, and, in fact, was also the name of Brigada Roja’s magazine. BR says: “The name of our broadcasting organ is in honor of the men and women who fought and gave their lives in the “Communist League September 23,” which was an urban Marxist-Leninist guerrilla movement that emerged in Mexico during the first years of the decade of 1970. Unlike other guerrilla movements, the September League had an important presence in large cities, including Guadalajara (Jalisco), Monterrey, (Nuevo Leon) and the City of Mexico. It was born as a result of the merger of various armed movements of leftist orientation, and took as its name the date of the attack by a guerrilla on the Cuartel de Ciudada Madera (Chihuahua), led by Professor Arturo Gamiz, which occurred on September 23, 1965.”

ELLOS TE ASESINAN

El tiempo sigue pasando, los problemas se van acumulando, la producción de pobres aumenta, la burguesía sube sus rentas. Y el gobierno sigue mintiendo, que la democracia esta funcionando. Ellos Te Asesinan ellos te secuestran. Ni un voto mas, solo gritos de protesta

BRIGADA ROJA

Brigada Roja, va sin trequa puño en alto listo a atacar ,sobre un camino difícil de avanzar, nuestro manifiesto siempre a sido el mismo. Una revolución basada en el marxismo, Brigada Roja

ZAPATISTAS

Empuñando sus armas nacieron en el sur. Una nueva luz en la revolución. Al cubrir su rostro su voz se escucho. El gobierno tiembla por la insurrección. El eco de Zapata se vuelve acción. Indígenas van por la apropiación, de las tierras robadas por el patrón. Zapatistas que luchan por su libertad, Insurgentes rebeldes que no van a parar

Amenaza Mexicana / Mexican Threat

In collaboration with Discos Machete, Incendiario and Sangre Caliente Records, we’re happy to announce the release of Amenaza Mexicana (Mexican Threat) … a cassette compilation featuring 12 tracks from 12 Mexican bands … de la escena para la escena … ama la musica, odia el fascismo …

Bands on the compilation are: Synësthësia, Ruffies, Trabajo Sucio, Malaria, Hollywood Babilonia, Afterboltxebike, Cooperativa Pascual, Filero, XRompe el controlX, Flores y Fuego, Automatas and Brigada Roja.

One of the people behind the compilation had this to say:

Amenaza Mexicana es un proyecto Do It Yourself – Hazlo Tu Mismo entre los sellos Rebel Time Records, Discos Machete, Sangre Caliente e Incendiario para crear un registro en formato físico de una parte de la escena punk y hardcore de México. Con esto buscamos apoyar a las bandas y mostrar las distintas propuestas y sonidos que van desde el raw punk, street punk, hardcore straight edge y punk melódico.

Amenaza Mexicana is a Do It Yourself – Hazlo Tu Mismo collaboration between Rebel Time Records, Discos Machete, Sangre Caliente and Incendiario to create a record, in a physical format, of a section of the punk and hardcore scene in Mexico. With this project we are trying to support the bands and show the different approaches and sounds; from raw punk, street punk, hardcore, straight edge and melodic punk.

And, as you can see, it comes in a veritable cornucopia of colours!

Here’s a track from the compilation … Afterboltxebike doing ” De Que Lado Estas?”

Krav Boca – Barrikade

… out now … Krav Boca ( out of Toulouse, France ) … “Barrikade” … the band’s / collective’s fifth album … 13 tracks … a potent blend of internationalist d.i.y. political punk rock and hip hop … guitar / bass / drums / mandolin … french / greek / moroccan …

… from their bio:

“Krav Boca rioters perform always hooded ! Pushed by a powerful guitar-bass-drums-mandolin, the 3 masters of ceremony invade the stage with greek and french lyrics : neither punk, nor rap or metal, but definitely a combination of all three.

After four albums, “Sanatorium” (2015), “Canette à la Mer” (2017), “Marée Noire” (2019) and “City Hackers” (2020), the band comes back with “Barrikade” in 2021 and continue to multiply tours all over Europe. Into the pit, on stage, on a playground or in the street, the watchword remains : CHAOS!

NO RACISM / NO SEXISM / NO HOMOPHOBIA !”

Of the  new album, the band says:

“When some people risk to be put in jail for having participated to a party, and where some cultural actors are judged “useless” by the government, we reassert our right to exist:

Passionate of music, alternative places, keen free party, squats, small local associations, thirsty for liberty, nomads, DIYers, improvised cooks, simple curious persons, unattached pirates, one night partygivers, art professionals and technicians more or less trained…

All those persons who anchor within their personal balance the visceral need to create, exchange, share and appreciate those sensations collectively.

Since five years of touring now we meet exceptional people who welcome us beyond borders. They aren’t motivated by greed but the urge to live. To be free. Without them we would be nothing.

To pay tribute to all those persons behind the scenes, we decided to give our new album “Barrikade” for free.

An album of protest that heralds our new state of mind for years to come…

We love you! Good listening to all!!”

Asbestos – Interview

… here’s a bit of an interview with Jeeps, singer of Asbestos, originally published by Dure Realite … roughly translated from french by Rebel Time Records and Google …

What are the origins of Asbestos?

Asbestos is the continuation of a 2-3 year old music project called Red Side Burns. We were three buddies who were fooling around in the corner (Franx, Eric and me) and who were trying to motivate other people to join the project that we wanted to be big red oi! Time passed and the project became more and more serious, eventually gelling with a meeting at Franx’s where we laid the foundations of Asbestos with Sansan and Noël.

For some of you, this is not your first band. What are your previous projects?

Yeah we have Eric, our bass player, who is a singer for Union Thugs and sang for  Action Sedition. There’s also the legendary Noel who also stars in Union Thugs and Mortier, but starred in Misbehavior and did a little time in Jeunesse Apatride. I’m pretty sure he’s played in other bands…

Where does the name Asbestos come from? Why this choice?

Basically we were looking for an oi sound with a post-punk feel, a bit like Tachanka or Syndrome 81, while bringing something closer to our reality here. While searching for a name, we thought of Asbestos, a mining town that has a history of workers’ struggles on one side and is now practically a ghost town due to the mine’s closure. For me, it is a representation of the inevitability of capitalism and at the same time a beacon of union struggles in Quebec.

While  we don’t know a whole lot about the band, it seems that the connection with RASH Montreal and the red skinhead scene is easy to make. Is that a label you want to claim in your speeches, songs, or imagery, as clearly as Action Sedition has been able to do, or are you aligning yourself with something maybe a little more subtle, a bit like Esclaves Salariés?

We proudly wear our colors and we want to be clear on this, we are all people from the far left and you will never see us on the same flyer as groups that do not share close or far from our ideas, especially when it comes to anti-fascism. Personally, I don’t feel the need to repeat what everyone who listens to us already knows. It is certain that there will be symbolic elements here and there, but it will not be a CNT parade in Barcelona in 1936. Not to mention that the more depressive aspect of post-punk does not have a sound that opens the door to an uprising of the masses

You have already released a track called Les Royaux. Tell us a bit about this song.

It’s our home away from home, our living room and, as soon as the snow melts, for sure if you walk past there one evening you’ll see some of our crew. We have been  hanging there for over ten years and that is never going to change. Even in winter, Les Royaux is a hot spot, at least when the bars and theaters close. With the Covid, its given us the opportunity to be there  even more often.

In terms of text, music or number of tracks, what can we expect for the rest of the album?

As we wanted to do a demo format we are talking about five songs, Des Royaux is by far the happiest and most oi !. The rest will be more hardcore and have a bit of a sad tinge both in terms of the music and the lyrics. We just released a second single with Esprit d’bande , a cover by Pompom Beretta .

You did your first concert in the backyard of Building 7 this summer. For many, it was your first appearance on stage or your first appearance behind this instrument. How did you find this?

I am really happy with the result! First of all, playing in a place as symbolic as the B7 was an honor for us. And this despite the pandemic, another big thank you to the organizers! Otherwise, after having adapted to the lack of monitors, I think we managed to do something respectable for a first outdoor show haha!

What should we expect from Asbestos for 2021 and do you have a little word for the end?

The launch of the eponymous album that’s for sure! Otherwise for the rest it will really depend on the pandemic and our personal lives, as I had a kid, it changes a lot the time that I can put on the project. We have a few songs in the works, but we’re far from ready to go back to the studio.

I know that the other members of the group have started a side-project called Corps Mort with Corinne from Jeunesse Apatride, I can’t wait to hear what it will sound like!

Asbestos

Coming in February! The debut release  from Montreal’s Asbestos … read about (and listen to) the band below!

“In addition to Valentine’s Day, February 14 also marks the beginning of the Asbestos strike of 1949. It is on this symbolic date that the Montreal francophone band Asbestos chose to launch their self titled (S/T) first album.

Inspired by a street punk and Oi! noise with a touch of Hardcore and Post-Punk, Asbestos has set out to illustrate through music the general gloom of the global pandemic by adopting the image of a decommissioned industrial town that had to change its name to successfully break away from its mining past.

Much like the times in which the album was produced, the music and lyrics of Asbestos do not ooze joy. Inspired in particular by the strikers of 1949, the group’s texts tell of a stark reality, that of those left behind, drug addicts, residents of rooming houses, the poors and other good-for-nothing of all kinds.

A first sample is already available for streaming on the band’s Bandcamp page, it is the song Les Royaux. It tells the story of the park that bears this name located in the South Center of Montreal where members of Asbestos like to hang out, a particularly precious place in times of Covid-19. It was also here that, in 1946, a man named Jackie Robinson was the first African-American to join a major league baseball farm team, the Montreal Royals.

With members of groups like Union Thugs, Jeunesse Apatride, Action Sédition and Mauvaise Conduite, Asbestos has five members: Jeeps on vocals, Sansan and Franx on guitars, Éric on bass and Mathieu UT on drums.

Far from the big commercial circuits of the music industry, the group is inspired by the Do It Yourself (DIY) yourself punk philosophy. In this mindset, Asbestos has only been able to offer one performance since its creation, in August 2020, during a free event organized with the means available at Bâtiment 7 in Pointe-Saint-Charles.

It is also in this spirit that the group decided to launch this album in the form of cassette limited to 150 copies distributed by the labels Dure Réalité (Quebec), Rebel Time Records (Canada), Discos Machete (Mexico), Kale Borroka Records. (Basque Country) and La Distro Elle A Mauvais Haleine (France). S / T will also be available for free download on the Asbestos Bandcamp page.”

 

The Fallout – “Casualty” EP

Hot on the heels of their “The Times Have Never Changed” album, The Fallout are back with “Casualty,” a four-song, digital-only release.

As always, a free / pwyc release on Bandcamp. Of course, you can stream it on Spotify, Youtube, etc., etc., as well.

Released by Discos Machete (Mexico) and Rebel Time Records (Canada).

Dig it!

Here’s a review of the EP from A.J. and The Punk Site:

“It’s only been six months since Canada’s The Fallout released the impressive “The Times Have Never Changed” album but now they’re back with the “Casualty” EP, that, as with their previous releases, is available as a ‘name your price’ download via Canada’s Rebel Time Records and Mexico’s Discos Machete imprint. If you’re not familiar with The Fallout then try and imagine something that’s manning the barricades on the edge of the same territory occupied by Anti-Flag and D.O.A., this is political punk rock with it’s roots deep in the scene, but this is not a band looking back, this is the sound of a band facing the future and tackling it head on.

What you get on the “Casualty” EP is four tracks that are delivered in around eight minutes, the EP’s title track launches you straight into a manic and timely blast of energy, the second wave of “Miracles For Sale” takes on religion and challenges blind faith with a blast of straight up old school punk rock. The throttle is twisted and we get back up to speed with a hit of melodic punk rock that raises a middle finger at religion and politics, that is appropriately titled ‘Same Old Shit‘. The “Casualty” EP bows out with ‘Warpath‘ another barbed slice of stripped down straight up political punk rock.

The Fallout are a band that keep the flag burning in the tradition of the best political punk bands, the energy on display backs up the political conviction, and make no mistake, both are equally important elements of The Fallout. “Casualty” combines a die hard D.I.Y. attitude & a genuine conviction, this is all delivered with a generous punk heart, you have nothing to lose, and everything to gain, by checking this out. If you love your punk with a direct, coherent and energetic message then this is for you. The Fallout are a band who do what they do purely because it’s what they love and to say what needs to be said.”

You can stream and download the “Casualty” EP via Rebel Time Records and Discos Machete”

Here’s videos for a couple of the songs:

footage: G20 demo /police kettling protesters at Queen St. & Spadina Ave. / Toronto / June 26, 2010

They burst in
Stop and stare
Feel the burn
The flame flares
Kicked in the head
Bloody gash
Floor turns red
You’re fading fast
Casualty
Freedom’s a casualty
Tried to recall
A better time
The downfall
The highest climb
The sun dawns
Day breaks
Your freedom
What they take

footage: women’s marches against gender violence and femicide and for legal abortion / Mexico City / 2020

From a thousand towns
Their heading down
On the warpath
As if you needed proof
Manifested youth
Are on the warpath
A system self reverent
Unable to remain silent
Will get torn apart

As we march along the warpath

Students make plans
Workers take stands
On the warpath
Fathers and sons
Have just begun
Down the warpath

Daughters and their mothers too
Will decide and they shall choose
Lead from the heart
As we march down the warpath

Action Sedition: A Couple Of Videos

Made up a couple of quick videos for a couple of classic Action Sedition songs:

ACTION SEDITION- NOUS NE RECULERONS PAS

from the Streets of Rage / Action Sédition split 10″ / 2014

released on Casual Records (France), Mad Butcher Records (Germany), Rebel Time Records (North America) and Street Influence Records (Russia)

footage: various antifascist demonstrations / Montreal

NOUS NE RECULERONS PAS

(Français)

Le fascisme est la dernière mode
L’Italie célèbre son Duce
Rien n’effacera cette triste période
Le régime nazi est bien ancré

En Espagne l’armée se révolte
Suivant l’exemple des Italiens
Les cathos sont à sa solde
Les forces de la réaction sont en lien

Non, ils ne passeront pas, nous ne les laisserons pas
Non, nous ne reculerons pas, nous ne reculerons pas

À son tour le peuple se lève
Pour faire face au péril fasciste
Il met en œuvre ses rêves
Libertaires et socialistes

En Catalogne on groupe les terres
Les usines sont autogérées
On repousse les frontières
De la théorie appliquée

Non, ils ne passeront pas, nous ne les laisserons pas
Non, nous ne reculerons pas, nous ne reculerons pas (BIS)

Les fachos sont solidaires
Les avions allemands sillonnent les airs
Ils veulent mater la révolte populaire
L’exil au nord est nécessaire

La lutte est internationale
La France est envahie par Hitler
Notre expérience devient cruciale
Les premiers résistants se terrent

(English)

Fascism is back in style
Italy celebrates its Duce
Nothing will erase this sad period.
The Nazi regime is settled in

The army is revolting in Spain.
Following the Italian example
Catholics have sold out
Reactionary forces are united.

No, they will not pass, we will not let them pass
No, we will not back down, we will not back down

The people rise up
To face the fascist threat
They make their dreams reality
Anarchists and socialists

In Catalonia the lands are collectivized
Factories are self-organized
Borders are pushed back
Theory is put into practice

No, they will not pass, we will not let them pass
No, we will not back down, we will not back down (x2)

The fascists are united
German planes mark the skies
They want to put down the popular uprising
Exile in the north becomes necessary

The struggle is international
France is invaded by Hitler
Our experience becomes crucial
The first resistors take root.

CLASSE CONTRE CLASSE

Classe contre classe
Toujours nous nous battrons
Classe contre classe
Jamais nous ne renoncerons
L’usine du quartier qui ferme
Encore des centaines d’emplois de perdus
La colère en nous qui germe
Plusieurs familles se retrouvent à la rue
Entre se tuer, boire ou gueuler
J’ai choisi de combattre pour ma dignité
Ma classe, on l’a humiliée
L’heure de la vengeance a enfin sonnée
REFRAIN
Le chômage ne suffit pas
Les propriétaires ne font pas crédit
C’est le retour aux sous-emplois
La précarité les enrichit
Les syndicats ne bougent pas vraiment
Gangrénés par la bureaucratie
Le pouvoir des patrons s’étend
Plus on gratte plus c’est pourri
Classe contre classe (x8)
Pourtant nous n’avons pas bien le choix
Si nous voulons voir nos chaînes se briser
Il faut s’organiser pour le combat
Le capitalisme, il faut l’éliminer
C’est par la lutte que nous vaincrons
La bourgeoisie et tous ses valets
Le rapport de force nous le renverserons
Car entre les classes il n’y a pas de paix

CLASSE CONTRE CLASSE

(English)

CHORUS
Class against class
We will always fight on
Class against class
We will never back down
The local factory is shutting down
Hundreds of jobs are lost once again
Anger is building inside of us
Families find themselves on the streets
Between killing, drinking or shouting
I’ve decided to fight for my dignity
They’ve humiliated my class
Time for revenge has finally arrived
CHORUS
Welfare is not enough
Landlords won’t accept credit
It’s a return to underemployment
Precariousness enriches them
Unions do nothing
Infected with bureaucracy
The power of the bosses spreads
The more we scratch, the more rot we find
Class against class (x8)
Yet we don’t have much choice
If we want to break our chains
We must organize for the fight
Capitalism must be eliminated
We will win through the struggle
The bourgeoisie and its servants
We will overthrow the balance of power
Because there can be no peace between classes
