Monday Music Video: Jewish Anarchist Anthem

The early 20th century saw influx of immigration. One of the largest section of new Americans where Jews, often forced off there historical lands in Russia and the low countries by Czarist progroms. These experiences radicalized these Jewish immigrants. Some, like Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman, embraced anarchism. These Jewish anarchists started there own Yiddish publications, like Freie Arbeiter Stimme {The Free Voice of Labor) the longest-running anarchist periodical in the Yiddish language, and the American counterpart to Rudolf Rocker's London-based Arbeter Fraynd (Workers' Friend).

Here is a Jewish anarchist song from that time. I don't really know it's name, so if anyone does know, don't be afarid to drop me a line and give me the heads up.
