Iconic leader Emiliano Zapata, the Mexican revolutionary, said in a speech in 1914: "It is not only by shooting bullets in the battlefield that tyranny is overthrown, but also by hurling ideas of redemption, words of freedom and terrible anathema against the hangmen that people bring down dictators and empires." In the times we are living in it is critical we utilize all the effective strategies including our songs, our voices and our wisdom to liberate ourselves from the forces that seek to destroy us.
