Rise Up Singing:
Circle round for freedom, circle round for peace
About the Song
From the song's conmposer (Linda Hirschhorn):"I first wrote the song back in 1982 in support of the janitors’ strike at UA movie theaters. I joined their picket line and circled round and round with them. The song went ‘viral’ at the demonstrations at the Livermore Labs against the buildup of nuclear weapons. Hundreds of us went to jail and the song spread out from there."
