Puerto Rico’s Calle 13 featuring Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, Palestinian vocalist Kamilya Jubran and Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks

Calle 13 now also released a new video for “Multi_Viral” that was filmed in Bethlehem and Belt Sahour, a town in Palestine.

Everything begins with a spark
When we radiate flames from our eyes
They want to stop the fire that spreads out
But there are fires that can’t be extinguished with water

And the police line gets closer
The muscles tense
The heart frequency increases
Testosterone levels go up
And that moment begins
The moment where people come face to face
When we become friends with courage
When screaming becomes our only language
I am commanded by reason, you are commanded by a colonel
If our fight is made of carton
Yours is made of paper

And you won’t stop us
Because a clear message
Transforms any liutenant
A shark without teeth

State fears us
Because we are 132 and 15M
If the media doesn’t dare
We do
We paint the walls
Graffiti on the streets
I raise my protest and I speak out loud
With just one person to read it
The world will start to change!

CHORUS:
Elbow with elbow
Step by step

The wave gets bigger

The foam gets ticker

As more people join
(…)

The one who controls
The one who dictates
Wants to get you sick to sell you drugs
And we take those pills

They make us dumb
Any question we might have
They found a way to skip
They give us lies
They feed us with processed meat
People still misinformed
A piece of news not well told
Is an assault with a weapon!

We infiltrate
We duplicate
Like the cells
We multiply
To the one who doesn’t want broth
It’s given two cups
We are the baking soda that makes the mass expand
Our ideas are free and they are awake
Because we think with the doors wide open
What is not seen
We are seeing
We are born without knowing how to talk
But we will die talking out loud!

CHORUS:
Elbow with elbow
Step by step

The wave gets bigger

The foam gets ticker
As more people join
(…)

Julián Assange: 
We live in the world that your propaganda made
But where you think you are strong you are weak
Your lies tell us the truth we will use against you
Your secrecy shows us where we will strike
Your weapons reveal your fear for all to see
From Cairo to Quito a new world is forming
The power of people armed with the truth

CHORUS:
Elbow with elbow
Step by step

The wave gets bigger

The foam gets ticker
As more people join
