Zimbabwe

The song Zimbabwe by Bob Marley is about the Revolutionists fighting against the Rhodesian Government. This song encouraged many of the soldiers from Zimbabwe to fight for their independence. Even though Marley wasn’t a citizen or from Zimbabwe, he wrote this because it was a country that was breaking off from Britain and going to be part of Africa from where he was born. In that time the French were trying to take back over Zimbabwe. The soldiers from Zimbabwe heard that song and it gave them hope. They fought harder and ended up winning their independence. After that Marley got invited to Zimbabwe to play for them in their independence celebration because he influenced them to win the battle.Page 1 of 1The song Zimbabwe by Bob Marley is about the Revolutionists fighting against the Rhodesian Government.

MY OPINION

CHARACTERS

1. Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny, And in this judgement there is no partiality. So arm in arms, with arms, we'll fight this little struggle, 'Cause that's the only way we can overcome our little trouble.2. To divide and rule could only tear us apart; In everyman chest, mm - there beats a heart. So soon we'll find out who is the real revolutionaries; And I don't want my people to be tricked by mercenaries.3.Brother, you're right, you're right, You're right, you're right, you're so right! We'll 'ave to fight (we gon' fight), we gonna fight (we gon' fight), We'll 'ave to fight (we gon' fight), fighting for our rights!

The Song: Zimbabwe

Protest Poetry: Zimbabwe by Bob Marley

If you're white and you're wrong, then you're wrong; if you're black and you're wrong, you're wrong. People are people. Black, blue, pink, green - God make no rules about color; only society make rules where my people suffer, and that why we must have redemption and redemption now. -Bob Marley
